    Well then, according to the folks I know here in my area they should still be working on it because they overheat just as much as they did before...stacked radiator, oil cooler and A/C condensor, no belly pan for ease of clean out, ride that beats the crap out of you, track derailment, etc.

    Heck, the T320 Kubota engine is still only Tier II when everyone else is running at least Tier III.

    loftness timber axe

    I have a timber axe extreme hydraulic mounted on my bob cat s250 hf and it is great i have no issues except over heat on machine every now and then when the air intake gets clogged with pine needles , leaves etc 30 min job to lift oil cooler and clean real good. maintenance is easy enuff greasing as required. the teeth now cost 65 ea x 12 and 55 ea x 2 and takes about an hour with an impact, when i need to it will drop a 6in tree and leave mulch and chips in it's wake. which gets bigger as it dulls but i keep it out of rocks etc and dirt as much as possible. I did learn right offf the bat to change the front door out from glass to a 700.00 upgrade 3/4 in lexan as the glass door disappeared in a second when it caught a piece of fence or some thing i was lucky thaat day

    I finally ordered a demo door for my CASE 465. Aside from the safety aspect, the $350.00 per issue got a little old.

    I run a Tushogg and the asphalt type teeth that they use have some great advantages in the rock dirt (you can mill asphalt with this attachment if you wanted to), the down side is its not effecient at processing material. The mulch is a little stringy.
