I know this sounds mad but i'm considering trading in my TAKA for a s330 bobcat . I have ran my TAKA for 1300 hours 10 months and my back is f*#@ked it has been awsome for the creek diversion and general cut/fill but working on road base and moving around large sites is a killer. When i use it for track construction it will build ramps and landings good but doesnt undulate as well for final shaping as a tyred machine. Tried the ASV cat system on a track construction job in Perth (sandy sandy) it was smoother but using it on batters i lost the tracks 4 times . What i wanted to know was how does this machine really perform digging grading climbing as they have not been released here in australia that long. And how do they perform with overtyre grouser and rubber trax and is the vts system any good? thanks.
