    I stopped in at the cat dealer (big beautiful place) the other day and inquired about buying a skid steer. He said hes got 4-5 252B units coming in with under 15hrs each. Price tag is $36,000.CDN. Sounds like a good deal but thought I would check with you guys first. Im worried why a company would buy a handfull of units then use them for only 15 hrs, and then trade them in???? Any input???????Thanks in advance.

    demo units from other companies maybe?..........a fews years back I bought a Bobcat S185 that had 15hrs on it from Caterpillar. Those machines may be coming from Bobcat, Gehl, etc. from comparison testing? I dont know pricing on Cat machines, but I know that I got a great deal when I did it, plus full warranty.
