    Before I considered the Cat and when I was looking at trading in my Case 450ct last year, I called the sales rep that sold me the 450ct and the 420 before that and he wanted to sell me a new Taki instead of a new Case. I had never heard of them until that time.

    I thought it was strange to be pushing something other than Case from a Case dealer, but he seemed sold on them.

    Cat Rentals even had all Takeuchi loaders on their fleet in Alberta, they dumped them with the "9" series CTL's came out.

    It's too bad that Cat has delayed the production of the smaller CTL's. I hate seeing our leader switching brands but it's not like you have much of a choice. It does seem that a Taki is the next best thing to a Cat for your needs.

    Price difference between 279C and Takeuchi LT240 - $15,000, and the Takeuchi will out work the Cat.
