The visibilty when the loader arm is up is non-existent, forget about the Robot unless all your work is with the loader arm down.

I'm not knocking the JCB's, but you have to try a telehandler out first and then think about the Robot concept.

Their loader reach at full height is also not the greatest, they were right about the same with Cat's radius path loaders.

There is also a Hydraulic Quick Latch system for Mustang/Gehl/Takeuchi loaders now from Bradco, my TL130 is getting one installed:


It has a diverter valve set up on the aux. system with an over ride switch and alarm in the cab, you then use your aux. buttons to operate the cylinder.

I always had plugging issues on my T190, so I just secured a fine aluminum window bug screen mesh over the outer screen and I never had any problems, once the heat built up, I got out and wiped the screen off. I wrapped it around the top and bottom with a 3/16” plywood strips with small wood screws from the inside and threading into the wood, and I pulled the rubber gaskets off the sides and siliconed them over top of the mesh to create a good seal.

Then everytime I went grass ...

Stick with a Cat skid steer, proven pilot controls for 12+ years.  I'm using a rental S185 and absolutley HATE it, my hands, knuckles, knees, ankles, arms and feet are sore from the stone age control system.

Maybe a bit late to this but.....Takeuchi has a neat little V notch in the pilot for the travel, keep pushing forward and the pilot control will slide into the notch.  You may have been inadvertently pushing it straight to the left, I made that mistake the first 2 minutes I tried a TL130.

Takeuchi, having owned a TL130 it will pick up more than you think, the ground pressure is about the same as the rest of the crowd with the exception of Cat's MTL's.  I've also owned a Cat 247B2 and I did like the undercarriage for it's low psi and traction, but those Cat's need to have the relief valves turned up more to lift the same as the others.  I currently operate a 2011 Cat 277C and those tracks are balls out insane for traction, but the same with power, it just needs ...

There is no way to compare the Cat 257B to a Takeuchi TL140/150, they are bigger in horsepowers.   The Cat has 60 and the TL140 has 80 hp. 

 Operating ROC might be close, but the weights of both machines vary.  A fair comparison would be the TL130 and Cat 257, but the Takeuchi would still win in loader power and push power.  The CT322 would be a very close contender to a TL140, but everyone seems to want the bigger cab and less loader moving ...

ROC is Rated Operating Capacity,  these track loaders are rated for 35% of their tipping load and the wheeled models are for 50%, the tracks  just basically give a longer wheel base which gives you more ROC.

The Cat 257 is 1900 lbs

Takeuchi TL130 1600 lbs TL140 2200 lbs and the TL150 is 3000+ lbs

Even though the Cat  is higher in the ROC versus the Takeuchi (1900 vs 1600) Takeuchi rates their loaders for the ROC at their maximum loader reach, so about ...

Sounds like you got a stuck valve on the aux side.

Hold the roller up/down and press and hold one of the buttons on the left joystick and slowly release the roller.  If that doesn't work, you might need a bypass switch as hydraulics won't work unless you are in the cab, you could try putting an 80 pound brick on the seat with the seat bar down and front door closed.
