CAT IS THE WAY TO GO....... I just bought a CAT 246 TURBO its a great machine. I looked all around at Bobcat, New Holland, Case, John Deere but let me tell you there is nothing better than a CAT. Two of my friends have CATS, they love them. You spend 30 minutes with the joy stick controls and you are loving life. My CAT can pick up a pallet of fert, pavers no problem. I was very impressed by the CAT team regarding service, sales & financing. I am so glad my friends showed my way.
