    Powerjoke, this is the first Cat I have actually owned but for the past two years I have been demoing and renting Cat, Bobcats, and Case MTL's and Skid Steers. This is what I settled on do to my experience with the Cats, dealer is very helpful and friendly (Helps when you spend that much money with them I think), and I think I got a pretty good deal.

    ALarsh, I don't pull it with the 1500 I have a Chevy 3500 duramax I pull it around with.

    Thanks for the comments all, it is nice to know there are people that understand how hard you have to work to afford a piece of equipment like that. (The other half doesn't't seem to get it yet)

    Nice CAT!! Won't the tracks tear up real easy though on the pavement?? Just what I was told by the local CAT salesman.

    EGLC If you run a tracked machine on asphalt in the summer the dealer is right it will tear the tracks up and wear them down fast, same with rock, but this also dependent on how the machine is operated, you cant just let anyone run the machine it takes some experience and common since. But for snow there will be a small layer of ice and it will just slip around very easily. I have found that the tracked machines are very good in the snow and I think better then a tire machine because I can make a ramp and stack snow about as high as you can think. Tire machines sink when you try and go up a pile.
