    Notachance, are you still here? Thanks for this info. I replaced the rear sensor and got rid of my warning, but the front axle still breaks. Disconnected the rear sensor only, and the machine runs and turns fine. From your info, might this mean the front sensor is not working, despite there being no warning? Or could this mean the magnets in the rear need replacing? Can't think of anything else.

There is probably a sensor that is not picking up a signal and the one that is getting a signal is being cut back to match the no signal axle. Another way to test it is to unplug the speed sensors in the axles and run the machine.

    I read all of the posts on this thread and it seems there are some problems in the earlier models. Also I searched on YouTube for mowing videos and there really isn't much there with any detail. I own 12.5 acres and would like to know if this would be a good choice in lieu of a ZTR?

    Well it sure is a lot bigger than a Zero Turn and with other attachments it will do more than a ZTR.

    If you need to mow, and use other attachments, with a cab, the toolcat with 4 wheel steer and 4 wheel drive, is at the top of the list.

    The TORO Groundsmaster 360 Quad-Steer, would be high on the mow and remove snow only list.

    I had considered getting one of these but had second thoughts. First of course was the high price tag. I see it as a bit more of a toy, especially with those dinky wheels. Can't have much breakout force.

    And as a utility vehicle, it has a very heavy ride, I found.

    Generally speaking, I have found that a machine that can do everything doesn't do anything exceptionally well.

    There is no doubt about it. The toolcat is nice, but I don't think it's the be all, end all it's made out to be.

    Then of course, there were the overheating problems. Curious if that was completely resolved on the newer models.

    Don't see a listing for breakout force, but it doesn't have any trouble curling a 1500 pound hay bale or the 1800 pound 7' brush hog.

    No overheating problems with the F series.

    Very stable on sidehills.

    A kubota F3680 with a cab, 72" rear discharge mower and 51" mower would be cheaper than a Groundsmaster with a cab and a 72" deck.

    That is an impressive picture with the mower. Put lexan in the windows, run flat tires and you would have one **** of a crowd control machine. No one would want to mouth off to that!

    I had a thought that Bobcat should have a double suspension in the front. Just like on my truck rear. Soft springs for a smooth ride that give way to heavier springs for load carrying. Or an air ride, that one could lower onto beefier springs.

    The later version of Toolcat with the 3ph made me question, why not just get a tractor. The visability to the 3PH is much better for hook up and seeing what's happening which I usually find essential. Plus the big wheel, small wheel is a configuration that seems to work well although I prefer articulation.



    Curious, is there a Def front and back with one hyd motor or two?

    I'm always toying with obscure questions. If I had to only have one machine, what would it be, or, if I had all the money in the world, what would I buy? Kind of clears things up a little. In the course of one of those excercises, the toolcat crossed my mind, but now I am not so sure.

    I always liked the JCB robot for the side entry, although not the brand. I have never owned a skid steer, and especially with getting older, don't like the front entry, but recognise the awesome visabilty to the cutting edge and maneuverability. Just saw that VOLVO now has a similar machine, the C series (one with rubber tracks) and I must say I'm smitten! It's nice to have fantasies!
