I would guess a lot closer to 12 grand a month payments for the first part, use to be 6 months but now I could see them wanting that for a year . Companies like Timberjack and John deere got burnt pretty good when leasing machines up north for 6 months , machines would come back with 1800 plus hours on them , tires were junk and machines were hurt pretty good

for me I would want the 604 parked beside the 602 to really see the size difference , 602 is not that small

ya I sat in that 602 on video, in the cab it just looks like the cab of the 604 . this guy seems to love the idea of the pivot in back half of the frame , me not so much , big thing is it make the wheel base longer so a larger turning radius and that's a huge thing in real tight select cut . hoses are also out in the open, that cannot be , well at least not on a machine I own

If I ever something don't find on youtube is it okay if I am contacting you Riwaka ?
What do you do for a living if you don't mind asking ?  :)
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

After owning that 405 franklin I had i think the center pivot is the way to go. I'm surprised you didn't jump on one for 0% @36months 😂

You've got the good wood out there for a cable skidder, unless your tied into the mill around here the bids are out of my reach on the 100-500mbdft lots to justify a new machine especially a cable skidder. Brand new 610E sits within sight of my house, it's not a little machine at all. I like the center pivot, on a small machine it was so much more stable.

I ran a cat 518 with the center pivot like your talking I believe. I didn't like it. It would pull real hard straight:) And with the wrong op the cab would turn over and there u sat. There ok but u can't beat a Deere with a torque converter. I don't like there electric but they are fast hard pulling machines and yet will still float on soft ground.
