Strengths Any dealer who has an honest mechanic who tells you that others have had the same problem and if you get ahold of the dealer and complain they will stand behind it. If the equipment we run every day was driven on the roads like your car it would be an automatic recall like many in the automotive industry.
Weaknesses Many error codes come up on the screen, many do not interfere with stopping operations but of course they need to be checked out and taken care of. Put new sensors in and still have error codes come back. Hoses in the backhoe boom will get leaks and boom must be taken apart to get them in, hint-put a pull line on the hose when pulling the old out and you'll be able to pull the new back through.
Overall Good backhoe/loader, We had a Cat before and had some of the same problems. Dealers don't want to fess up to the mistakes that are in their equipment so these reviews are very good for others to see that they the same problems.
