    Looks like prices should be a bit lower in 2009.
    This dealer will have some good prices for you guys,
    I for one will be looking for a new Komatsu D31EX-22, I ran one in Miami, sleek, powerful and very good visibility!
    Cat wil not be immune to the slowdown, everyone has been cutting back!
    That does'nt mean Cat will go under, as the same goes for the other manufacturers. I really don't see any manufacturer closing down or going into bankruptcy, hopefully this will not happen and things don't get much more worse. They are simply adjusting output levels to suit the demand.
    Demand for equipment remains good in some countries such as in Latin America, Dubai and other developing countries.

    It's amazing where all those machines have come from.

    Oh if those tracks and tires could talk.

    Alot of money in iron sitting there. Is it forsale or does that belong to one company ?

    We have a company down here and the word is the manufacturer will not send any new units to the lot unless they are pre-sold because of the rising inventory of repo's and machines that are already on lot and not sold. I have seen this before, maybe not this bad, but if you need some iron this is getting to be a good time to deal. If you already own some and making payments, this is also a good time to play hardball and get the price or payments reduced........

    Rock that's where i'm at just turned down deal on the dozer i was looking at.I didn't go to the sal ,but was going to call in bid,but was to late.Left number at the time.

    "The rest of the stoy" they called after the sale and the guy no saled the dozer.He called me and talked price.It is a very nice machine,but!!!! I told him i would do this and he counted, and we both sleep on it.

    Called this moring and both of use called it a draw .He didn't want to move any and i didn't either.:dizzy:

    So life goes on! Weather is changing winter is same as here,don't really need more tax break,got enough payment(got plenty work but who know what next year bring).Spring work is short time frame.

    My mom( long gone) always said " if it's meet to be it will be" ! Also" things happens for a reason"

    O" by the way did i mention ....... i', oldDDDDDDDD:) besides.:usflag:

    Yeah the last time I went to my volvo dealership they had over 20 excavators repoed, everything from 210's to 460's! they were having to reant another lot to store the repoes:dizzy:

    The salesman also told me he could see us a brand new volvo 210 CL excavator for the same price we bought our Volvo 210BL in 2004 with 350 hours on it.

    Were really consdiering buying a new takeuchi TL250 skid steer. 0% for 4 years, trade in the TL150 we have now and the payment would only be $50 a month more.
