Gecko US Army Heavy Type II Skid Steer Loader (M400T) Build

I just finished up a review build of this over at Track-Link. You can see the whole build there:

Whoops, forgot to paint/weather the exhaust pipe. :open_mouth:

I also scratched up a fork set for it, with parts I was able to source (short forks and attachment parts) from kosprueone here at Armorama (thanks Bob) that were left over from the Takom FUG 2.5T Heavy Forklift.

I think I like the forks better than the bucket. We will see though as they are just set in place for now and can be changed out later.

Noice and thanks for the review build. I think the forks look good but would seem more at home with the wheeled version which I think I might try with mine as I have both items.

Cool. We use a few of these made by Bobcat at the beach where I work. We have both the tracked and wheeled skid steers. Now I might actually have to get some of these.

Thanks guys. I think it is a neat little piece. I like it.
