I took delievery of a brand spanking new S 185! Not the Gold package, but cab, heat/air! It is a lot more machine than my 763 that was traded in. I went for the cab because of so many travel trailer/mobile home demos last year. I hate wearing a full face resperator, and they are just full of fiberglass. (I also whack boats too.) Stinging insects are another issue. I had to trade in my 709 hoe as well to get my payments down, and truthfully in my area, I did not get that much work for the hoe. Installed my Mc Claren demo tires and took off! The vertical lift path really helps reaching into 40 yard debris boxes. It reaches farther in, to dump or compact. It has a bit more weight, and overall feels more powerful lifting, or using aux hyd. I just had to blab about it somewhere! A.G.
