    It is to some. Out of 39 sizes and variations of the Cat skidsteer, the 236 is #8 up the list.

    And, you're right, it's a 1,750lb lifting capacity, add 100lbs with counter weights. I ran a couple of these except they were "B" models for some time. Nice machines, just the right size for many applications. It's priced average, I just wish it had cab/heat.

    Maybe my 280 is a lemon but this 236 outperforms my 280 by along shot. The nice thing about Cat is that they do not exaggerate their numbers. They actually under rate them.

    I never meant for this to become a deere vs cat bashing thread but.....

    Let me start by saying i beleive cat makes a decent machine

    I speak from experience since we run a 236b and my 250 side by side for a fall and entire winter and I can tell you first hand that the 250 would out do the 236 all day in dirt or snow and the 280 is a monster of a machine compared to a 250

    Several of my operators love cats and where the first ones to say that the 250 worked better in the snow

    The 200 series machines where actually quite under rated as far as the numbers in the book

    I cant really speak for the 280 but my 250 does alot more than the book says it should
