    Got to drive one around the yard at CAT today...you hardcore guys should like it....rides good, tough undercarriage, simialr to a D3 and big lug tracks....I was surprised how well it rode on the gravel/asphalt millings area at the dealer....

    I doubt the dealership here in the Seattle area will have one on the yard for quite some time. Wish they had one on the lot, I'd take advantage of my current unemployed situation and go down to take a look at one.

    hard to tell just driving it in the dealers lot, but the haters will like the grease gun adjustment (like all the others) with the suspension seat it rode almost as nice as my 297C....

    We all know you won't be close to the dealer tomorrow, Cat's never break down and you just picked up preventative maintenance parts. You should be good for another year before you have to put any money into your equipment, that's just how awesome Cat is.
