I signed the paper work and the deal is pending credit approval and the demo that will arrive on Monday. Brand new 247 MTL with full EROPS, hydraulic coupler, beep beep horn, bucket leveling, attachment electrical harness and polycarbonate front window-$44,200.00, after taxes and trade and other numbers-$23,396.30. I can't get a used machine for that price, no way in hell. Monthly payments will be around $740'ish @4.65% interest rate, far less than the 60 month @ 4.9% interest $1000'ish that I was paying for the T190 ***AND*** the CAT warranty is 2 years (unlimited hours) on the machine and 1 year on the tracks or 1000 hours. Thanks to all that posted in my thread and gave me something to think about, some of you that are reading this might think that the extra money I could have payed for a rigid frame CTL would be the money that I will blow on my undercarriage in the future, ***but this will not be a high hour per year machine*** merely a little tax write off for all the time spent working for Triple B excavating and to keep my small but trustworthy contingent of customers happier.
