    Was wanting to know about the machine operating capacity. One site said it could do 3001 lbs @ 50% and 2860 lbs @ 35%. Another said 2860 lbs @ 50% and 2000 lbs @ 35%. I was wanting to know if someone could explain how the numbers are calculated and what they are based on. I didn't know if I could lift around 3000 lbs off of a gooseneck trailer with it which would be helpful. Other than that the machine has 40 hrs on it with H pattern and standard flow auxiliary and no cab. Would like a 440ct-3 but the pocket book is complaining and I didn't know if the cab space was the same between the 420ct and 440ct. The price seemed decent to me but was wanting to know if anybody knew what a reasonable price for this machine would be? Thanks
