OK...I have been on the CAT 236B for a few hours and am VERY impressed. Tomorrow I get to demo the John Deere 320 (the old number was the 250 series) and am curious as to actual user opinions regarding that model skid steer. Though I like the CAT A LOT...the Deere is a little over 3k less expensive with comparable if not better stats on paper (I say paper because you can't always believe what you read...as the sales rep correctly identified it as thier "propeganda"). I have one friend who is a die hard 250 user, but I think his opinion is quite biased...no, I know it is. So once again. if any of you could please share both positive and or negative experiences with John Deere 250/320 model skid steers I would greatly appreciate hearing the stories! Thanks!
