    I am always surprised nobody likes my equipment ideas. I guess nobody has cash? I personally cannot stand to lose money... makes my damn skin crawl. Buying new to me is like lighting money on fire. I would rather tie up money in something rather than throw away 25k in payments over 3-4 years. Hell saving the difference between buying used is better than the banks are paying in a money market account.

    I sold one guy a loaded 08 T320 with 74.0 hours and saved him 20k off of a new one. I sold another guy a Case 445ct with 110 hours and saved him 17k. I sold another guy a Bobcat 430 mini-x with 76.0 hours and saved him about 9k.

    What is the difference between these machines and new one? Is the dealer going to pick up and drop off a machine when yours goes down under warranty?

    I once caught a fish ......... This big.

    I guess your ideas are smarter then everyone else. When I picked up My machine, Brickman had an order of 9 new machines... Someone should let them know also.

    Sometimes you gotta buy new. Either let
    The money go to uncle sam or spend it on equipment.

    I did come across a nice Deere CTL 322(?) for $27k, 500 hrs and the paint looked brand new, ad said garage kept. By
    The time I called it was sold.

    I would rather pay the taxes. If you have a sh!tty acountant you will pay a max of 30% in the highest tax bracket. So you ate not really giving it all to the government and you are only saving 30% by taking the write off.

    I just sold a 06 332 with ac 265hrs for 29k, the deals are out there.

    So you "need" the writeoff but cant pay cash? So you are effectively financing your taxes for the next 5 years? Do you do this every year? Seems like dangerous train to get on.

    YOUR HIRED! Ha my how these threads can go down the tubes.

    I dont know where I said I dont have the cash or I "need" the write off. When people debate a topic, they usually dont just put choose what words will make their point seem stronger. I prefer a new machine, Financed at a very low percent, full warranty... and most importantly, all Perdy and shinny! That way I can keep that good old safe full of the millions and millions of dollars!

    Dont let this ruin your weekend :)
