    I just waited 35 days for a Bobcat. Was told that the hand controls were the problem at the factory.

    Nothing like getting a machine just as winter hits, then again you are in my old stomping grounds of Arizona and depending where you are, winter can be the finest time of the year there......Up here we just get cabin fever and go snowblind.

    Just the opposite here. I use it from Sept. to June and put it up for the summer, too hot to be outside unless we're at the river in the boat.

    Two months ago I didn't know about Cat and wasn't really looking for a new machine but I finally got fed up with all the short commings on this 450ct and started looking to see what was out there. I was going to go with the new Case until I found out about Cats.

    I might have to take pictures and post them like you did, of them hauling away my Case when they bring me the Cat. I can't get rid of it soon enough.

    You want to know how rough the Case ride is. The ac units metal mounting tabs ripped right out of the casing and was flopping around. Besides the belly pan filling up with dirt faster than I could keep up with it, and the ac not cooling like it should, that was the last straw.
