Hopefully you don't store your equipment in the basement like I do. Carrying it up and down the stairs is taking its toll on my back.

The 870 is half the weight of your PC700 so it wont be an issue for you.

My back would handle it........the knees would be my problem area. Carrying that much additional weight upstairs would be a struggle. trying to carry that much weight DOWNSTAIRS, I believe that I would almost in a cartoon like manner, roll to the bottom of the stair case, due to a knee giving out.

My dozer was delivered 30 minutes ago , almost threw my back out picking it up. It makes my Premacon machines at 30 lbs seem light featherweights. I will take photos tomorrow in the light and try to figure out how to post them here.

Congrats.. looking forward to your pics as I have the dozer in my sights. But your right on about the weight it's shocking at first, but in a good way unless your the lowboy.

Thanks , I want to show the size difference between the dozer and my other machines and my Bruder excavator which at 7 or 8 pounds is now just a joke.

No. You need a Spektrum receiver, either an AR8000 for 8chs or an AR9020 for 9chs
