    Helped out a friend excavate about 200 yards of muck to make way for an expansion of an existing gravel parking lot. We excavated out about a foot of material. He rented a brand new Bobcat T750 and I ran it and he hauled all the material off in our Tri-Axle.

    I really liked the T750, had really good power and its probably the first joystick machine I have liked besides our A300. Our T300 is hand and foot and I still prefer that when grading and spreading material.

    I was wondering how well it loaded the truck? I think I have my backhoe sold and looking to get a track loader.
    I like the bobcat 650, 750 and Cat 289 as I'm for a comfortable cab. I'm just worried about loading a wheeler,
    I have excavators to load with too, which I use a lot to load with now.

    It was great for loading our Tri-Axle, had no problems at all. I think it actually lifts higher than our T300. You would have no problem loading any size dump truck with the T750.

    The M series lifts quite a bit higher. Even with cheater boards it's really easy.

    Thank you for the information on the M series. We would not be loading a lot with it, but it's nice to know that we could. Sorry for highjacking your thread. :)
