    The 305C CR is definately a great improvement over the 305CR. My dad has a 303CR that I like, not a bad machine for it's size and it keeps up with others in the size class. But, the 305CR always seemed like it lacked a little, performance wise, compared to Deere/Hitachi, Takeuchi, Kubota, and others. Now the new series seems to kicking the crap out of most everything, I'd say they're almost up there with Takeuchi which has set the bar pretty high.

    The 305CR's weren't bad to begin with, they just didn't spec well. For guys who are performance oriented, they weren't a first choice machine. Now the 305C CR on the other hand is a brute, Cat definately improved by at least 60% in my book. Plus, the aux. hydraulic control is on the joystick standard with the current series, where it should be. When we bought our 303CR, it cost us $2K to swap out right hand joysticks and route the electrical. It turned out way nice, wouldn't have it any other way and if we had to do it again, we would, but Cat made it standard equipment on the C's. Not a big deal if you run a breaker or hoe pac, but if you're using the thumb all day, using your foot gets old very fast.
