My cat 259 came in today!!!

My Cat dealer called yesterday and said my 258b3 has arrived.
It currently has 12" wide tracks, I ordered it with the 15" tracks but somehow someone screwed up. Cat is going to swap them and put the dual idlers on when they come in.






Sandstone wall we built this week









This machine is now forsale

That is just too damn sexy for my eyes. Damn Caterpillar should have had this model out 2 years ago.

Looks like Caterpillar took a page from their dozer undercarriage book, a vast improvement over what the had before.

Your going to have BC Ron drooling over the the pictures

They are still my first choice for a rubber tire unit.

I ordered this machine in the first part of october, they told me it may be january before it get it but I guess it got here early.....


This thing is a beast. With my tire loader I could barely push 5yds of dirt without spinning. Today I was pushing 10 yds or more and it never let up. Dirt was coming over the top of the bucket so I had to stop.


The torsion bar undercarrage is nice, it make for alot smoother ride.
