Spent about 3 hours on a CAT 287 yesterday making a make shift motocross track for some friends. I was very impressed with pretty much everything about how the machine operated. This leaves pretty much the only machine in consideration that I haven't tried yet being the ASV... As anybody who may have read some of my other threads may know I have some simple yet strict criteria. 1)Machine must have atleast 60+ hydraulic horsepower from the high flow as I will be using it with a Loftness/Fecon type brush and tree cutter.. 2)I am 6'4 330+.. Comfort in the machine along with entrance and egress ease are very important. I have a belly ofcourse, but shoulder and ESPECIALY leg room are VERY important. Unless anybody thinks the cab on the ASV is more comftorable for a bigger operator than the CAT, I may start trying to work up a deal for a 287 this week..... .... I sigh again thinking that if only Takeuchi had a high flow unit we would not even be having this discussion.
