Any one purchased or priced out a 323D with a cab and ac? Just starting to look into a new machine.

I have been looking at the 323 as well. I have a few questions for JDSKIDSTEER. The horse power of the 323 seems to be much lower than other competitors in its size class. Why didn't Deere make an equal to the rubber tire 326? I was told by my local dealer that Deere has turned up the horse power in the 323. But has yet to update there literature. Is there any truth to that?

326d is a large framed 5 cyl. 323D is a mid framed 4 cyl. That said, I was told that the upgrade you're referring to is not yet available, but will be in the 75 hp range when it does come out. The Ct322 that the 323D replaced was 66hp, and I never felt underpowered in that machine, quite the contrary in fact.

66 gross. 62 net. So 2-3 hp lower than the 323D. 75hp will match up nicely with what Cat, CNH, and Bobcat are putting out. Right now the 323D has the lowest hp and smallest displacement engine. The torque numbers can't be much better. :cry: Anybody have a ranking of the new torque numbers?

Minimax have you been happy with the performance of your 323? How about the high flow capability? My dealer quote me $55000.00 with basically the same options. Don't know how much the price went up in one year. But I don't think I'm getting a good deal.

Yes they have turned it up and put bigger drive motors. No updated literature yet. Not sure why they have not made one the size of a 326D yet......In my opinion they should have done that and left the 318D and 329D out all together and made a 327D. Other than lift higth the 323D will do most anything the next size competitors will do. They said they mad the 319D to compete with a TL230 and T190.....I say crap to that. The reason people stepped up to our CT322 it to lift pallets of sod and TL230 and T190 wont budge a wet pallet.

55K sounds high....45 or 46 sounds more like it.

I love that machine,It has been the best CTL I have ran to date.High flow runs my brushcutter great and the machine tons of cooling both for the machine and the A/C.I got it without the Hyd. QC and 2 speed so you take those and add 3k to what I payed also.And I got it with no bucket because I had one.But I order it with a/c,high flow,air ride seat,radio,EH controls,light guards,13" tracks,self leveling,HD rear grille,floor mat, attachment controls, and a 3 year warranty.

I call BS to who ever says that a Takeuchi TL230 can't lift a wet pallet, I can easily pick up a 3000 pound brush head for a 320 Cat hoe, and I have the video to back it up!

He is what the dealer sent me
323D foot controls,15.8" tracks,cab with heat/ac,cold start package for $45,248
Think there is still some wiggle room there. I want to be fair to the dealer but I also want to get a fair deal.
also have most of you guys switched over to the eh controls and was it a minimal learning curve.

I will never go back to foot/hand controls, pilot controls are the way to go, even a child can operate the machine with out having their feet on the floor. The only learning curve I had was getting a perfect 360 spin with out having the machine go from reverse to forward.

how do you control tearing up the lawns with the pilot controls?

I have excellent control. I can tear up the lawns at will.

Posted via Mobile DeviceIm just telling you that is the reason our customers running them Takis are running TL240's.

Wisentaner have you made any decisions on the 323? I have a demo coming out this Friday. If you are still pursuing the 323, I would be interested to hear how you make out with the pricing?

Minimax I have a 323 on demo. The EH controls are they adjustable for sensitivity? The controls the way they are now seem slow to react. Also the loader arms have a lot of side to side play. I understand the vertical lift will have a little. Having a radial lift, I'm' not accustomed to it.

You need a bit of side-to-side play, if the loader twists and everything is tight, something snaps. My brother's Cat 277C has that going on in the rear loader pins on the towers.

Yes the controls can be set to what you like.Some side play is normal but is not to bad.I shimmed my quick tach,thats were the play was in mine.

Minimax, that price of $41,500 correct? I read through a previous post of yours "Machine lists for 61,000 and I got it for 49,300 and 26,000 for trade on my ct322 with no bucket and 900 hrs,will have same payment per month and no out pocket money to put down on it!!"

I'm still shopping around. Dealer is standing strong on his price quote of $55,000. Trying to get an idea what is a fair price to pay.

Maybe in time Deere will bring another machine out to their CTL lineup to complete it and equal to the 326D skid.

Bleed Green: You said the hp was turned up on the 323D. Were you referring to the introduction of the 323D series? Or was it turned up even more after they came out? The dealer told me there was a 4% price increase as of May 13.

U would have to ask jdskidsteer to make positive but I believe JDskid said they made an adjustment to them to turn the hp up recently.

That is correct. Bigger drive motors and more HP.

How much more did they turn them up? Was there a problem with the existing drive motors for them to change them?

Man that sounds high. Back when I was selling, I was pricing out CT332s new for that??;)

I think they increased them to 70 hp. Supplier was not reliable with inventory and the new drive motors are rebuild-able.
