Buying an MTL soon.. We think. Have demod and used on jobs for last five years several ASV TAks Deere and bobcat. As a limited manager of our company, want to purchase best machine for jobs with least downtime and service issues. With that said, as a landscaper, our jobs in MS are mainly clay and topsoil and rolling hills. Our main jobs include grading, clearing overgrowth, sidewalk and driveway forming and pouring, sodding, bedding, etc. nothing revolved around bush hogging or rock and gravel work. Crazy, but ASV was the best machine all around we rented. But each time we picked up from HDepot, the employees were always talking about the machine being straight out of shop. Now with Terex owning AsV, I am sure they have fixed maybe some of the quirks. But to this day, Cat AND Terex use same Perk 2.2 L engine and I know Cat In house engineered their own MTL undercarriage. Concerning they haven't picked up a better Reputable diesel brand like Kubota. The help / input /review our LCO needs is users who have used or rented Cat 247b3 and /or Terex PT50. Please give whatever pertinent info you have on why or why not you would BUY each unit. Thanks.
