I'll second the Case TR320. Try one out if you have a good dealer in your area. Before I bought mine, I ran it against a 289C and a TL240. The Case was just outperformed the others IMO and the new cab is nice. I also liked the TL240, it just felt a little dated and didn't have quite the breakout power. Overall nice machine though and well built. The Cat was distant third. The cab and instrument cluster is nice, minus the flimsy door. Power felt weak for a machine that size. Visibility to the rear is non-existent. The ride was a little better but not much.
