    No offense taken. I sold Bobcats for over 8 years and own an S220 so I do like the company. I'm just relaying info from my buddy who still sells them.

    Well I pulled the trigger and bought a 2014 Cat 259d CTL. I decided on the ctl as itll be better overall for me in the long run. I also got a 5 year warranty put in with it. I put pics on the pics section on this forum
