    I know he was just showing off, but I can see some situations where a machine like that would be darn handy to have. Not just is safety but in access too.

    Humm, I didn't see the bucket move the entire video. Also I wonder how many minutes they get out of that undercarriage. It is really cool though.

    You know if he REALLY wanted to impress people with it. Put a Harley Rake on the front and clean his mess. Be nice to see technical information on it.

    I am waiting for somebody to do that to a Skid Steer or a CTL.

    Thank You for posting the video and interview

    Sam - Here's an interview with Bobcat skid-steer product manager Mike Fitzgerald specifically about the Bobcat remote control system (from two years ago. It might have been updated or expanded since then):

    http://www.constructionequipment.co...cclamp&articleid=CA6492062&videoID=1279703038

    Sorry you have to suffer through more of me on video, but Mike's explanation is pretty good.

    And if you want to read professional operators' impressions of Bobcat's remote-control system, check out this Hands-On Earthmoving story: http://www.constructionequipment.com/article/CA6538038.html?industryid=23399

    Hope this is useful,

    Larry

    Here I thought there was somebody in there the whole time until the end when I saw the guy with the remote. Guess I ought to learn to read a little better. Imagine the land clearing/excavation you caould do with the tracks alone.
