I went to Cleveland Brothers, also a pretty big company. I mentioned that I could drive to Alban and save 15K, but he didn't seem to be buying it. Not saying he was a bad salesman, because he was more than helpful and would work on the price. But not 15K lol I'll try shopping against Bobcat and Deere. They all have shops within a mile of each other. Bobcat is basically right across the street. I'd even be happy if we could get it closer to 55K otd. We'll see what happens.

Its only a 4 hour drive to Baltimore. I think alban has another dealer farther north

I'd drive 4 hours to save 15k in a heartbeat lol

The funny thing is trailers are generally cheaper in pa than here

Whiffy most times I would agree they can do the special price anytime, but in this case they cant. It was something extra Cat was offering, thus the current price being mid 60's not mid 40's I call a 20k discount special pricing lol. My Cat dealer told me the other day he sold a 259d and couldnt get close to my price. They sold me ine for the lowest sale price theyd usually sell it for and Cat kicked in a bunch more for the end of the year special.

I was going by my cat dealer and they had your machine sitting out front funny out of all the models that was the one very impressive when you get up close to it. looks like a great cab and front visability looks like it would be good to cutting edge as well as side to track but how is the rear view? the back looks very high and hard to see behind you. the store was not open and I didn't have my cat key with me to see.

CAt320 I havent spent a ton of time in the machine myself, but I would say it isnt the best at seeing behind it. I would def suggest the rear view camera itd be worth whatever they charge.

agreed on the rear view camera rear visibility is not great. The one i priced out came to 69K high flow 2 buckets grapple forks wide tracks advanced display with camera and some other options then pa sales tax after that

Got an email today from my salesman. Apparently, Cat started a new promo today. Our new, updated price is now $54K OTD with a bucket. Extra $800 for a set of forks. Right about where we wanted to be. Hopefully we can make it work. Decisions, decisions...lol
