We have the first one hear set up with gen set and magnet the other one we will get in a bout month with just a grapple. We will have each for a month to see what bugs they have to work out before they go into production. The last photo is the machine they are replacing.Excuse the dust all over everything were ripping all of rock in the lower yard to pore concrete so there is nowhere are customers or trucks have to drive off the concrete. There not GT's but they have 4 tires and fun to run.

That is kinda radical with the cab on the boom. No more steps to climb. Looks like an interesting machine to test.

When would the outriggers be used ? Is there a weight limit you can lift without them ?

I think that cab would take some getting used to.

(How much does that puppy cost? I see it as a great garden tractor lift!)

Is the new machine the same weight/size as the M325? With the hybrids coming out, it's hard to keep up with the changing numbers. No more 345, 330, etc....now 349, 336.....

All the time, the outriggers are up only for transport. I'm surprised they are up with the machine parked, seeing the stick swung to the side of the machine.

It looks like to me that the old machines cab does the same thing. Having the cab go up would make it easier to see unloading a high sided end dump or flat like they use out here for scraping.

Sorry took so long to answer just got off work . This one pretty much like Cat said any time your working the machine. This machine doesn't have locking suspension like m325 has. So if your level you can swing the 3 ton mag around with outriggers up if your not moving.

It's hard to tell they look so different . There is no tags on this machine for weights. But this will be replacing the m325. They have some ways to go to match what the m325 can do. You can swing a mag load of ion around 180 with outriggers up on the m325 as long as your not extended out a long ways.Not the new one. The m325 is really stable you can drive down the lane and swing the cab all the way around wile still traveling.

Basically they work the same way . I wish the high cab I run had the hydraulic cab I've got 11 steps up to cab. If shear not running and sorting I'm up & down the steps a bout every 15 minutes .

I remember a few years ago I went to a scrap yard and they had a grapple unload us; he was also working in the pile and putting stuff into the crusher, he had a cab that went up like those, they get pretty high up there!
