hey guys figured i would start a new thread for this one. so this is what it comes down to, after running both machines side by side for the past few days i must say the cat was a better machine both of my operators said the same as well. don't get me wrong the bobcat 337 was a very nice machine as well i just liked some things about the cat better then i did with the bobcat so the final numbers work out like this bobcat was 57,000 not 56,000 because they are giving me the key less entry option. cat was 61,000 and there matching bobcats 2 year warranty!! and there throwing in the thumb for me if i go through with the deal what do you guys think?
