Ron,you sould get your facts right before bash some other brand of machine.
On the new deere d skid's and ctl's you have roller to run aux hyd. and there is a button to lock it on. you set the speed of the flow and the way to have it run,and then hit the set button.

Minimax- do you have a picture thread? Id sure like to see your machines in action looks like you have a solid setup. Also how many hours are on the 35, and have u had any troubles? How does it handle the mower? Im looking at possibly trading the 334 in on a used 35d.

I know that, every machine has that, but not the dump valve set up, push a button and the return oil goes in the tank, same place the case drain line goes to, and yet turn the system off, and it returns to a double pressure system. The Deere/Hitachi mini's had this set up, a valve you turn under the cab entry area for hammer, one reason my Dad bought the ZX27.

Nope, then you don't have the "smarties dent" then.

thats the plan, kinda.

i have three ways to go on this deal...

plan 1) trade it in on a new machine, they both offered me a very good trade in value. New machine will be just shy of 60k

plan 2) let cat sell it and rent until i find a repo machine loaded out how i want it. machine with less then 500hrs will be 43-45k.

plan 3) let cat sell it and then go buy a lightly use 332 with 400 hours loaded out for 30k. no warranty on the machine.

pros/cons

plan 1) i will have to wait 4-7 weeks to get my machine, however it will be exactly what i want, i wont be able to buy another machine until i get this one paid off or paid back a lot.

plan 2) i may have to wait months and months burning up money on a rental. shoot it may never come and then i got boned on the trade in of my machine and then i have to step up to the plate to buy new at a big disadvantage.

plan 3) this may be the smartest business decision, it will alow me to get into a newer machine to avoid downtime and repairs. It will alow me to buy a second machine (mini exc. dozer or wheel loader) this year with out stressing out about money. However i really want a nice machine well equiped so i dont mind running it for 15 hours a day.


what do you guys vote?

TSS, I have had only one prob. and that was with the a/c had valve go out.
For mowing I could use more cooling but a extra oil cooler on the roof fixed that and it was only a prob on 85 deg and hotter days. machine has almost 3000 hrs. Look up some my old treads and you will find lots of pics.

I belive you could have a somewhat biased opinion.
