Well, thought I'd update. Our 303CR showed up today all shiny and new. Everything is just like they said it was going to be and the thumb control on the right joystick is the only way to fly, I like it already. Haven't done any work with the machine yet but I know what to expect, I've been running the rental 303 for about a month now. I'll get some pics pretty soon. We ended up getting this thing cheaper than I thought. I thought our original quote of $39, 700 did not include tax, but it turns out our total price with tax ended up being $40,091 with a hydraulic thumb (not exactly sure on the cost of that, going to guess at least $2,000), $2,000 for 12" and 40" buckets and the reposistioning of the thumb control was about $2,000 as well. WA sales tax is 8% and without taxes this machine would be about $37,000, a pretty good deal I think, especially when I go on Catused and find 303CR's with about 200 hrs that are lesser equipped than our machine costing maybe a couple thousand less, if that. I'll try to get some pics in a couple days. Pawnshop, pulled the trigger on that 35D yet? Com'on, everyone's buyin machines, jump on that bandwagon! Hope all is well.
