Enclosed cab w/ hand/foot controls or open cab w/ joysticks??

Well in my search for a newer used tracked machine, ive come to the conclusion that in the price range i want to stay in (under $30k and low $20ks after trading in my mustang skid), i will not beable to get a cabbed machine with joystick controls.

so take into account i live in very southern louisiana. ive run accross some great deals on a few Tak TL130s and a few Bobcat T250s.

so what would you guys go for?
#1 Cabbed machine w/ hand & foot controls
#2 open cab w/ pilot/joystick controls

being im in the process of getting my new company up and rolling, plus i bought a new enclosed cab tractor a few months ago, and a baby due in May

im leaning towards, getting a open cab with joysticks(to save on fatigue when doin emergency response, etc..) and get a new machine cab/joysticks once the new company takes off.

all opinions are welcome. sorry for all the questions fellas
