This machine with a 72" dirt bucket with bolt on cutting edge and a 5 year warranty was $48,800k out the door.
Hate to bump a old thread but I'm replacing a 257B and looking at the 259D. My dealer has quoted me almost the same machine with a 4n1 bucket but he's at $64k. Anybody else priced one lately and if so what is your location? NC here.
