    I picked it up on wed.

    Its a new 2014 Caterpillar 259D CTL. it has the heater/ac & radio and a few other buttons Im still figuring out lol. 75 hp Kubota engine. I havent used it to much yet but it seems to have a good amount of power. After going from my 2004 Cat 242B this thing is like a dream.

    I didnt even get a chance to ask about a price for them on the triple flange idlers. I guess I can always add them later.

    Thanx, yup it is a nice machine. I tried a Bobcat, John Deere and this one is the best in my opinion.

    Its pretty much the same to service as the other Cat skid steers Ive seen. It seems the be the same as my 2004 242B I just sold. Same basic set-up. The only difference is the radiator has the nuts that you have to undo to lift it up to clean it as apposed to there was a quick lock on my old one.

    This machine with a 72" dirt bucket with bolt on cutting edge and a 5 year warranty was $48,800k out the door.
