sorry guys, that made me puke a little bit in my mouth when i was compared to gravel rat

my 332 is up for sale and as SOON as it sells i will buy a new low hour 332. i decided i like my roll up door, wads of power and sturdy u/c. i thought long and hard about the rental rate on a 332 but i firmly belive that is a temporary price. as soon as the market rolls back around the rate will shoot back up. I just need a second machine to take some of the work load off my machine. any other machine would help. i bet with a second machine i will be able to do no more then 500 hours per season on my machine.

i have found many 332's that would work for 30-35k and im ready to make the move......as soon as mine sells.

after that i will get a 50d, 450j and then a mid size loader. Sounds like alot but it could all very well take place this year.
Why isnt tak an option again? Because they've got exactly what you are asking for.

I am just asking because you've complained about Deere's service already, why stick with them if they suck?

Oh yeah, imagine not having a cab on your skid.. Thats what it will be like on that dozer and will suck during the winter. Besides, on used machines, a cab usually doesnt cost that much more because the guy that bought it new got the brunt of it.

Deere is getting better and I like there machines. I like to fly one flag, and I know I will be getting a deere mini and dozer also. I don't really see myself using a dozer in the winter. They don't grade frost to well. Find me a 1500 hour 450j lgp with a cab for 30 grand. You can't do it. Cab machines tend to run 10 grand more

You got to be some kind of hard core weirdo to want a machine with out a cab, especially a dozer, pay the extra money and stay warm and dry.

Work isn't supose to be all warm and fuzzy. I don't minf getting a little dirty. A cab isn't a must on a dozer for me. Now a loader or excavator is a must. I just think about when would I be running that machine?

Blade is too narrow for the tracking width, that's a $2000 additional cost to widen it, rubber tracks on a 18,000 pound machine is just stupid and their seat is cheap, my Dad's ZX75 (same frame, no boom swing and ZTS) has a true suspension seat, I do like the new generation pilot controls.

And your dad paid 50 grand more ya dummy. I guess when you get bent over you need a soft suspension seat for your sore bum though.

I didn't buy a cab machine because we will knock all the windows out in the woods.
