  1. Regarding grab v grapple, it was more expensive for very little benefits I thought and reckon I'd damage it easier digging about in the ground. Sold the CAT yesterday, I must admit it's like lightening compared to the Bobcat as I did a wee job with it last night before getting parked up for new owner,
  2. 7 breakfasts in a week! 😀 the days of staff when I used to feed the troops would of been double that I bet!!!
  3. Loads of power, not as quick on the controls but I'll be honest ive slowed down a lot and getting more done. The thumb is amazing! I'll hardly use the grab now unless It's branches for chipping. I only had the 1.7t for 2 months, then swapped it fir tracked dumper as contracts changed and it was more suited at the time
  4. More refined but certainly not as quick. im just getting used to it
  5. Nope but made £4K 1 day pressure washing a factory! Best money I ever made 😀
  6. I'm too lazy to take it off even if it was a pain 😀
