I checked the nosie level with db meter and at idle the reading is 64 db in the cab and 88 db outside at 10 ft from machine,full speed it is 72 db in the cab and 93 db outside at 10 ft.I ran it though JD credit 60 months at 4.9% for a payment of $720 a month.I have ran a Takeuchi and it was ok but hard to keep a even push without spining one track,and they are very loud.

As far as a radio, well, I like my Sirius, and you can add a small heater for nothing. You shouldn't worry about your phone. It gets in the way,so I don't answer it. If you mind dust, get the hell out of this industry. It's dusty.

Avoiding dust inhalation, if possible, is a good idea. Talk to any veteran operator and they'll tell you about lung issues from inhaling dust for extended periods of time. I wouldn't hard time a guy for wanting to stay clean and healthy.

ouch! expected a slightly lower interest rate. My new Kubota KX 121-3 is $503/ mo @ 0% on 30 k borrowed. Maybe I'll check with my local JD dealer just to kick the tires anyway..................

Machine lists for 61,000 and I got it for 49,300 and 26,000 for trade on my ct322 with no bucket and 900 hrs,will have same payment per month and no out pocket money to put down on it!!

To talk about the machine,I can say deere got it big time right,The nosie level is not bad at all(I always have wore ear muffs in the 322)in the 323D I keep thinking the motor is not running,there is no prob. hearing the radio.

The controls are very responsove,I did not like them the first hour,but I like them alot after I got the feel for them,very low effort and a short storke to work.

The door is way bigger along with the cab is much bigger,you can open the door with the boom up about 16" inchs and get in and out.The cab is sealed up really well I power rake in the dust for 3 hours and the inside of the cab was still clean.

Con's Two speed is a waste of money the machine needs more power to make two work where I would use it,like going up hill.The power QC is well guarded but blocks visiblty to stuff like a power rake.I would say the rear visibty over the rear hood is alittile poorer than the 322,but not bad.

Pro's cab is great,controls are way better,cooling is great for guys like me,water temps are running about 10-15 deg. cooler and the hyd temps are 60-80 degs cooler then my 322.

I will try to post some pics,of the machine.I don't know about let you guy drool over pics of my girlfriend,I don't want to make bobcat ron to jealous
How aboyt the A/C?I had a customer tell me it was so cold he had to open the windows.

Ron, You will be running a Kubota next year and promoting it. You creditbility is gone. 2007, Bobcat is the best, 2009, Cat is the best, 2010 Takeuchi is the best..2011 Kubota is best, 2013 Thomas is the best......ANYTHING BUT A DEERE.....
