Any word on next gen bobcat skid steers?

Anybody heard anything on the next generation of bobcat skid steers? I have a low hour S300 that i was thinking of putting vts tracks on as i really could use another ctl, but wanted to see what bobcat was gona come up with first. My dealer said they will have something different this fall, but knows nothing else (or so he claims). In the mean time i guess i will just rack up the hours on the T250.

It's going to be Fall of 2008, my dealer always got the new models in early October at the earliest, I remember playing with the first T250 that hit the yard back then, and it was the middle of October.

Never, I am saving 50-60% in fuel right now according to Al Roy, Bobcat's were and always will be pigs on fuel.

I did get better fuel economy with a 90 hp cat running a brush mower vs. an s300k series Bobcat but the Bobcat. bobcat, though, was more reliable for me.

Here's the facts for the Non-Cat believers:

Bobcat T190-28 gallons of fuel, full bore, balls out starting at 8:00AM, by 3:00PM, I'm tanking up.

Cat 247B2-17 gallons of fuel, same kind of day, same work, just using the throttle pedal more, filling up with fuel by 3:00PM.

Both engines have 57hp, the Cat runs at a higher RPM due to the pumps.

The Bobcat used nearly 10 gallons more fuel, and they really haven't changed that much.

Suck on that Bobcat....eerr..I mean DooCat.

So Deere, Case and Cat's are the best for fuel economy. Not too shabby.

KSSS, just for you:
