    Just your opinion. Overpriced is only in the eye of the purchaser.

    Bingo......When my Dad priced out a Cat 308DCR it was just over $10,000 higher than the Hitachi ZX75, but the new Dash 3 ZX75's were priced right up there with the Cat, astonishing, and the Dash 3 cab is 10 times better than the current Dash 2.


    Damn it.

    Cheap old man.

    No mate Bobcat is not bringing in the T320 to Australia as yet. I priced a T300 and it was just on $100 000.00 with Air, Hi Flow Etc.

    What type of work do you do and what are some of the attachments you will be using on it?

    Good luck with your new machine and let the rest of us know how it works out for you.:usflag:

    I'm guessing prices of heavy equipment in Auzzie land are extreme compared to North America, even a T320 here goes for $87,000 with all the bells and whistles.
