That's a great deal for such a new machine!!! You will love the tracks! They are more aggressive than the ones I have and I have never had a problem with traction. Please post back with reviews and what you like and don't like!!!!!!

Ya it seemed like a good deal to me. Especially because it was a one owner machine everything else the dealers had were all rentals and some people don't treat rentals all that nice. @redoak lumber I did read that they had track issues but if you look up any ctl somebody is complaining about the tracks failing  so hopefully your buddy just had a bad apple and I don't have the same experience he did. The tracks are in good shape now everything seems tight I don't think this thing has seen much work at all. Full cab heat and ac joystick controls standard flow auxillary on a foot pedal. Its got all the work lights turn signals beacon light windshield wiper 2 speed I could just sell my truck and drive this everywhere. The onle thing I have to out in is a fm radio and a cb radio.

Well I finally tried the grapple out today doing firewood. I was using just the regular dirt bucket because it was easy to change between the forks and the bucket with the hydraulic quick coupler I didnt even have to get out and slide pins or hook up hoses. I sure am glad I bought it now though I can grab twice as much split wood with it over the bucket. And one full scoop of logs fills the arms on the processor made for a nice morning before I had to go to work. Here's a couple pics.



This pic was from a few days ago splitting some small locust for somebody now there's a big pile of red oak and maple behind the processor I really need to hook the conveyor back up.

Good choice on the grapple. 

Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!
