She said that they have a manual gear shift or you can push a toggle switch and they will automatically shift. They are four wheel drive and have a outlet for a spot light. She didn't know where they are made. The way I understood they have 3 gears with 4 ranges and a reverse. But don't quote me on this.

What I meant by an open front is that it's kinda like a girls bike or moped. To get on you don't have to strattle the seat, you can slide on to the seat.
My friend said that they are very dependable and the only work they had done was all under warranty. Guess that's all I know. I can give you their number if you want more imformation....Hope this helps..

Sounds like a nice machine, Haymaker. If it's the same company that builds the airplanes and/or jets, they are a Canadian company and top-of-the line.

The next best corporate jet to a Gulfstream.

And if it is a bombardier, part of the cost probably goes towards Quebec separation. Bombardier has just shut down it's plant in Toronto and moved operations to Montreal to "bribe' Quebec into staying within the federation.

Anything from Bombardier is usually financed by the Canuck feds. They have been unable to stand on their feet for many years.

Canuck feds are now providing loan guarantees to an airline in the U.S. of A. so they can buy Bombardier aircraft.

As for the 4 wheeler or quad - have seen it and used it. A reasonable machine.

As for Quebec - most of my Canuck friends figure it is time for them to leave the party and take their share of the debt with them.

OT,
We run green, I'll agree it is high, but resale is better than anything else. :wink:

We run green too, Katrina. Resale IS higher but the green parts are getting outrageous! Another thing JD is getting to where EVERYTHING is proprietary on their equipment now. Bearings are sometimes $80-90 bucks when one that closely resembles (but won't work) at a parts house is $10-$15. I don't like all these "sealed" bearings they are using now either.

There has to be a point of no return and I think JD is approaching it.

Ours is old greeen, and I agree with you there. I like the dependablity especially since I am by myself most of the time. I grew up on cases, but I like my 4440 better and my 8440. Greaseless bearings are the sh**s aren't they? We change um if we can. Had a bearing go out of the water pump. My dear hubby forgot to put bolts in when he pulled the pump apart :( Costly mistake. I felt bad for him... I agree whole-heartedly with you Mike, but the mystic of green is hard to get over.
