Is that your 605? I have been trying to find someone that owns one, or opperates one. It is the closest to the 943 that i can find. If cat would only bring tyhe 943D out, now that would be something to look forward to.

The 943D... Now that's a thought. I'd like it too... But now it's just a wet dream. But honestly, with TIER 4 and a rear engine loader, the visibility would suck. That's what I dread about the E-series.

That would be one hell of a wet dream though. I agree with all the emissions bull s&^t comeing out, it is scarry to see what is in the near future.

Kubota,Volvo and maybe Izuzu diesels are already TIER 4A compliant. All volvo and Kubota need for 4B is a cat converter. Komatsu rolled out some engines to become compliant too.

I think they're "interim Tier 4" compliant. Isn't 2012 the year when all engines must conform fully.

Sorry Stick Pro, it isn't mine. One of the salesmen emailed me the pic as they are getting as a trade in. If it doesn't get sold beforehand, i'm gonna demo it when i have some proper work for it. The deere/lieherr track loader deal was canceled as of Jan 1, 2010, so there should be 100% Deere 605D sometime in the near future.

That would be nice to see a 100% deere 605, since i am just dreaming for cat to bring back the 43. The curent 605 is nice to look at, but when i look at the caterpillar D sieres machines. Deere needs to do some catching up, in my opinion.
