    That's the exact type of trailer I want to get. I want to sell my deck over gooseneck. That way I can haul my tractor and a mower if need be.

    What I'd like to know is how you managed to get a 5 year warranty. I just bought a new 305E CR and a used 259B and even on the new excavator I could only get a year warranty!

    The Cat comes with a 1 year warranty stock. The only CAT warranty you can buy is a 3 year total so really your adding a 2 year to the stock. Alban Cat agreed to do an in house warranty for 5 years or 1000 hours. Ill hit the 5 years before 1000 hours. Its something they sold me I think I paid about 2800 for it. It covers all the major stuff, engine, pumps, hydro ect.

    It did great in the snow. My worker said he had no problems pushing 6". I have a 8' pusher box on it.

    I see. I'd say you got a hell of a deal on it then. I paid almost that for my 359B3 with 2 buckets.

    Yup Yup I was very happy with what I ended up paying. JD and Bobcat couldnt touch it. I think Jd would have been closer if they had 1 in stock, but they were going to have to pull in one from another dealer. The Bobcat dealer had one in stock but they were way over priced.

    I know this is a little off topic but do you care to show us your shop and office space. And all the rest of your equipment in general?
