    I wanted a to demo a Deere but the salesman told me it would be a waste of time and he never even quoted me a machine. I wonder why?

    A 323 is the same size as a 322 right?

    Because he knew Takeuchi was a better machine. :laugh: Even my Bobcat dealer says the same, want more power and less frills? Get a Takeuchi.

    Well guys I'm leaning heavy towards a 333d. As long as my machine starts up and runs tomorrow it will be a done deal. The taki dealer is working hard for the sale though. I think he will be 55-57 on a loaded out 250- no hi flow

    financed thru JD Finance ?? Whats you monthly payment? Interest rate?

    Sure would consider trading my '07 322 with 600 hrs for a quite ride :)

    Please, please please wait for the Takeuchi, you really have to try one before you knock it, I would have ended up with a Takeuchi had the dealer had one on the lot, you will fall in love with the pilot controls and rear visibility.

    i really want a refined, nice, Cadillac kinda cab. I want cool a/c and a quiete engine so i can hear the radio, i want to stay dust free and talk on my phone while the engine is at idle. i remeber when you and i were talking about 2 years ago and i said "i dont care how loud or how dirty or how bumpy the ride is, i want the strongest baddest machine available" well my opinion has changed 100%.

    i have never run a taki but i dont think the cab is as nice as the deere

    If you want a radio, get a Sirius and a damn headset. I can't hear jack crap over my machines, and if i bought a new CTL/SSL today, I would buy a CTL and it would be a TL250 with hi-flow, A/C and a cab. Period. As far as a radio, well, I like my Sirius, and you can add a small heater for nothing. You shouldn't worry about your phone. It gets in the way,so I don't answer it. If you mind dust, get the hell out of this industry. It's dusty.
