    Of your girlfriend, we've all seen enough Deere.

    Three things you could address when you get a chance-

    1. Noise Level-i wear ear plugs in my 260
    2. Controls-i don't lift weights when i run the 260
    3. Cab Door-i liked the old one, could always open it.

    I'm looking to trade the noise maker on something and have considered a 323D, among other things, but haven't snagged a demo yet.

    Glad to see you're still alive, was just thinking about how much things have been growing this spring/summer and figured you were busy just mowing away.

    I sgined papers on one today,I orderd one with cab with a/c,high flow,EH controls with performace package,air ride seat,radio,light guards,HD rear grille,reversing cooling fan,HD batterie,floor mat with foot rest,chrome exhaust,anti-theft,rear view mirrior,standard tracks and quick tatch.

    Machine lists for 61,000 and I got it for 49,300 and 26,000 for trade on my ct322 with no bucket and 900 hrs,will have same payment per month and no out pocket money to put down on it!!

    To talk about the machine,I can say deere got it big time right,The nosie level is not bad at all(I always have wore ear muffs in the 322)in the 323D I keep thinking the motor is not running,there is no prob. hearing the radio.

    The controls are very responsove,I did not like them the first hour,but I like them alot after I got the feel for them,very low effort and a short storke to work.

    The door is way bigger along with the cab is much bigger,you can open the door with the boom up about 16" inchs and get in and out.The cab is sealed up really well I power rake in the dust for 3 hours and the inside of the cab was still clean.

    Con's Two speed is a waste of money the machine needs more power to make two work where I would use it,like going up hill.The power QC is well guarded but blocks visiblty to stuff like a power rake.I would say the rear visibty over the rear hood is alittile poorer than the 322,but not bad.

    Pro's cab is great,controls are way better,cooling is great for guys like me,water temps are running about 10-15 deg. cooler and the hyd temps are 60-80 degs cooler then my 322.

    I will try to post some pics,of the machine.I don't know about let you guy drool over pics of my girlfriend,I don't want to make bobcat ron to jealous:laugh::laugh:
