    Now this is what happens when they mate:

    Looks nice and narrow, good side visibilty and a perky little bugger, and if you look closely a the rollers, it has a true roller suspension!

    It does look like a Takeuchi and Cat mated together. I would like to see them come to the states so I could demo one.

    the cormidi iron cat looks like a good machine ,problem is dealer here is asking same dollars as new cat 247b2.cat has good reputation ,wider bucket so carrys more,higher top speed and cat would have lower ground presure.
    new taka tl240 is $20k more than cormidi but taka has very good reputation so I dont think this unknown cormidi is going to sell here , not unless the price drops $25k
