    did CAT discontinue the 232b series model? I went to their site today and all I see is a 236b. Whats up with that?

    Cat does sometimes seem to take off random models and put them back again. It happened a while ago with the 992, even though it reappeared exactly as the 992G.

    It's a relief, though, because the 232B is Cat's best answer to the Bobcat S175.

    The G makes a diffrence in all seriousness. A G loader is much diffrent than a C

    Sorry; I meant 992G was replaced with an identical 992G.
