    Purchasing a 2021 toolcat 5600, is this a good deal?

    On earlier models (series A, B, C, etc), the no cab option meant no doors but the rest of the cab enclosure remained. There are a few out there, but dealers never ordered them because everybody wants a/c.

    Traction Control

    I'm seriously considering trading my Series A for a newer model (2015 or 2016). I am considering used to get a better deal. Traction control is a must have. When looking at a machine how do you visually see it has traction control? I know it can be disabled from inside the cab so that means...

    I know this picture is a litle late, but here is a picture of my 2003 5600A (non-turbo) with an SB200 (66 inch) snow blower equipped with a 4.9 ci motor. Does not throw snow as far as the high flow turbo models, but it did not let me down with the back-to-back 30 inch snow fall in the Maryland...
