I"ve seen only one....1997, when we built a new house. One contractor had one for moving fill, leveling with the planer, etc. GUTLESS! constantly re-starting while working- it was a new machine. Reminded me of the 1816 I drove at a dealer lot.....hardly enough power to turn on dry surface. 1998 I bought a used Gehl 4625.....that little 46 hp Kubota had torque! Way more than the Gehl 5240e I traded for 3 years ago.

I was with a friend that was looking to buy a 4625 new in 1995. The dealer got in it and started rooting dirt out of his packed like a rock parking lot. You would have needed a hammer to get a screwdriver into this stuff. It barely phased the Kubota engine.

It sounds to me that the operator wasn't use to a machine that had quick responsive hydro and loader controls. The F/R levers do operate in the mid areas of travel also.
It didn't make any difference what brand of tractors that farmers were loyal to, but they all had Case 1840 Skidsteers.

you wouldn't believe the amount of manure we loaded with an 1816 besides ear corn and silage, an 1840 is not gutless, too bad gleaner didn't make skidders!
