All of my machines have never been back to the dealer.

I see Cat vs Bobcat is very similar to Camaro vs Mustang on a muscle car forum...

I was quoted 54,500 for a loaded 259D everything but high flow. We have a 259B that has been great so far only 1200 hours on it, but has zero downtime only grease, air filters, and fluid changes. I still need to demo the 259D I demoed a 279D, and the controls were better than the C, but still do not seem as quick and precise as all our B's I wish I could just put the D series cab on a B's series. I love our 259, but I do not push dirt all the time like most must. It runs a soil conditioner, landscape rake, land plane final grading, and a drill seeder probably 80 percent of the time. It is very quick, nimble and a great size for what we do.
