    Not good. I heard a couple stories from some operators losing it in the ice last week. I slid the Kx 151 down a hill and through a fence when i tried to stop my self with the bucket it threw me sideways through the fence (luckily not off the 4 foot wall on the other side of the fence) after I just explained to the guys I was working with that I wanted to save the fence. Oh well only 3 sections of aluminum fence and hurt pride. Another operator said he took a Cat 320 down a hill sideways that day too.

    It is only a scratch, it will buff right out.

    I bet that you will see that machine at a RB auction with a new paint job.
