semi retired drainage ,site work , eq operator.
i,ve put a lot of hours in g machines and in h machines and i really like the h machines better with the digital dash and ride control. computers scare me !!!
gotta say havent had much problems with either,
but im sure i dont have nearly as much hours as you guys got !!!
i really don't want to go backwards into the g's and the real question is what about going forward into the j's ????. stay with the h's or move a head to the j's .
mostly light dirt work summer and need dependable work pushing snow winter. 544 and 644 sizes i like.
