    There a great piece of equipment, very versatile. I was looking around last year to buy one used until I saw how much they were going for. Crazy money for what they are.

    Thats half of it for me, I can't get over that cost. If I'm going to spend that kind of money on new rubber, it better be a good sized front end loader.

    You can buy 6 or 7 new sets of tires for the cost of one set of cat tracks! I have many hours in my friends cat 277, its an awesome machine, but too rich for my blood. My kubota grand l doe's everything i need it to, without putting me in the poor house.

    I always thought compact track loaders where worth there weight. I just didn't realized how quick they could make them. And how simple they really are. You think they could charge less but what do I know i plow driveways and make pizza...
