I haven't heard any info on the D's either, only good stuff on the bigger D's.

D series minis don't exist yet. Could easily be a year before they are released.

i had read a small article about the improvments of the new d's in the article in called them minis and had a pic of a 305 sive machine, i could not see the letters on the side to see if maybe they just threw a old mini pic on the article. i will ask my sales man for the low down. i just searched up and down for the mag but cant find it.

i dont agree, i got a much better rate from cat then i did from deere or case for equal machines. deere was over 10k more for a 50d compared to a cat 305c cr. i belive a 304 is the equal to a 50d so that would be five grand less then the 305

I was quoted 68K for 3 buckets, thumb and coupler on a 305C loaded. That was a 18 months ago when they were selling all that they could build. I am sure you could get a better deal now.
