Brandt Tractor is the Deere dealer, and if you are just outside the city, it should be just as easy dealing with them as with an ag dealer who isn't familiar with the construction products. Brandt is pretty good to deal with in my experience, and they could certainly get you the parts you'd need.
Now, that being said, I would stick with Cat myself. A nice 140G might be just what you are looking for. Is there a certain size of machine you will need? A 14 is a nice machine, but if you don't need that big of a machine, a 140 would likely do just fine for you.
