So I am guessing the deere handles that bucket just fine?

yeah it handles it great. i can rasie it all the way up and track back and fourth and its not "tippy" at all. i dont know how many yards it holds but i know it can move a pile of dirt FAST!!!

Isn't that just like a dad, I get screwed over by my old man all the time and I don't even work with him anymore. I somehow end up getting conned into helping him figure out his equipment issues, whether it be maintenance, or he has a job that he doesn't know what piece he needs to rent to get it done, etc..

Let me know how you like that 321D, I've yet to see one out here. I've been hearing that the 325 and 330D's are good hoes, curious to see how the zero tail swing machine does. I've already posted what I've heard about the 345D we had for a couple weeks at work, overall it was a good hoe and I can tell you that the cabs in the D's are SWEET. I liked the C series cabs alot, D's are just a little bit nicer. Curious why you didn't just get a 320D on rent?

Those Deere's really need those flaps, my question is, how will the rubber get back to that position if it flops over the other way, like when you dump.









Oh yeah, by the way, you are soooo cheap.

the way the flap is bolted on it makes it want to go back to normal, i wasnt sure it it would work at firt but they always went back. no they may wear out as time goes on so i will see.

with my other cat bucket it is so high up they cant go the other way.

yeah thats dads for ya. to top it off i allready paid him for half of the work he never did.

i got told them a 320 but they didnt have one so they gave me a 321 for the $ of a 320. im not a cat wizz so im going to guess and say a 321 is just a little bigger right?


wo wo wo hold the show!! a 321 is a zero tail swing machine!! f that. that thing isnt going to be able to realy throw a full bucket full of dirt with the arm all the way extended is it?

Think about what you're saying. Why would Cat produce a machine that can't swing a full bucket completely extended? It'll be fine.

So I guess I dont understand something. How is that rubber piece supposed to keep the dirt from spilling over, acting like a spill guard?

its not really a spill guard more like a "keep dirt out of my pins and bushings guard" in a matter of ten minutes the pin is dry as a bone and it works into the little tiny holes in the oin the greese comes out of. once it has packed the tiny hole full of dirt you cant grease it any more and have to pull the pin out and use a little pick to get the dirt out.

no not at all, i know topsoil and this stuff is by far the best dirt i have ever seen in my life! its almost not even topsoil but compost. the top 8'' is normal topsoil and then it goes into this dark rich compost. you can still see packed areas of plant leaves 7' down that have decomposed.

i have been calling it supper soil.

The 321D shares the same cab as the 308DCR's, just with a wee bit less room behind the seat.

just a rental, don't really have a need for one. Other equipment will do most of the time. I think it had 3 hours when i got it.

oh ok, i was going to tell you to have them drop it off if its a demo. i may end up renting a 305 or a 308 for a month also.
