Calling all Equipment Salesman

Are you guys having issues getting equipment from your factory? If you place an order for a new SSL or CTL what kind of time frame are they giving you. You can PM if you would like.

If not, I understand why since this is a public forum.

Sounds like everyone is having that issue. The lack of parts seems to be the problem. The component OEMs laid off and have not ordered raw materials, now that orders are coming in, the majors are not able to get their parts bins filled, Rexroth is way behind.

Try your local Cat dealer for Volvo teeth, our Volvo and Cat dealer use the same teeth for factory buckets, very strange. Kinda funny to see a Vovlo parts man running like hell across to Finning to grab some teeth and sell them to you for 10% more and come back to the counter out of breath.

262 C seems like the best bang for the buck . Bobcat will have some 350 S650 nachines to sell when Brickman returns there winter lease machines but from what I was told most are sticks and pedals.

Yes 350 skids is what Brickman winter leased this year. So that should flood the market and drop prices.

Bobcat doesn't have a 12 month lease program but I could see them doing one for this type off customer.
