    My brother phoned me up one night and asked me if I was still planning on selling my skid steer, I said yes, but I am still using it.

    So he says "I have an idea, later on this year in June or so, I would like to have my own skid steer, so why don't we both go to Finning and you tell them that you want to trade in your Takeuchi against a Cat skid steer that you know will be a good machine for me, then they will do the final payout on your Takeuchi, and I will take over the payments 1 month later on the new machine."

    I just started screaming. :laugh:

    I told him based on my knowledge of CTL's and their comparisions and the lack of power from Cat's skid steers, I can save you and me both some paper work and I'll just keep my f***ing Takeuchi and sell it.

    He gets a shiny new Cat CTL and I get nothing, I get screwed. :laugh:

    So at dinner time I asked my mom if she was sure that after 33 years that this idiot was actually my brother, she said, "I am almost 99.5% positive he's your brother, sorry."

    Thanks Mom. :cool2:

    Maybe he duck taped him in a cardboard box and pushed him down a staircase.

    I had to put that on hold, too many unanswered questions about the company, very secretive as to who they really are.
    But work is right back to full tilt here, I've even been doing 3 days of demo work in North Vancouver, talk about an eye opening place.

    All I will comment on is how many messages can you have in your cell phone voice mail inbox before no one can leave a message, if your inbox is full, that means you don't want people calling you because of a bad history.
