This isnt some Merceds where to get the heated and cooled seats I need the heated stearing wheel I dont want, this is bare bones basic crap that is not a luxery but a simple matter of my business and lively hood they are making difficult for no reason other than utter stupidity because they cant simply cant leave well enough along or just offer options like every freakin other manufacture does.
I hope whomever came up with this loses his job and fast!
Yes, I was hoping they would keep the regular 900A series along with this lineup, but apparently not. I think they did it to make a wider range of prices depending on a persons needs. Like I mentioned before, the 930M is same engine and deck as 925A, but is cheaper (according to my dealer). But isn't that what the lighter commercial 700 series is for? They should of kept the 900a lineup and threw in optional additions or subtractions to each machine. Ya want c and c? Okay we will get that installed. You want to save money and go with handbrake instead of foot brake? Alright we will install a handbrake.
Same with the new flex forks they have. It's something you can add to any machine, but its not standard.
I also heard there are plans for a smaller framed diesel 997 but they are waiting till all the tier 4 stuff or something. Wouldn't be till 2014. I won't believe it till I see it.
