    Nice loader! I wonder if it would be hard to keep a plow of that type at the right angle with a loader.

    Nice Machine. Wish I had your money. So what other attachments did you get for it? And we need some action shots and vids. Non of this sitting in the driveway waxing it stuff. GET IT DIRTY! Oh and did Dave shun you from his place because you bought a Cat and not a Deere?

    No the the comparable 244J isn't really a Deere anyways so Chad made the right choice.

    HAHA nope, this ones a little big for that aluminum one... We'll just drive it everywhere...

    I've got lots of time in a 2009 244J and they are very nice machines as well, but they have some cold start issues, has 11hp less (really feels underpowered), 5km less travel speed, and I really find the cab cramped, the Cat you can stretch right out and be very comfy, the deere I find, even with the seat as far back as it goes, my heal has a hard time of touching the ground, and driving the loader with your toes is not all that fun! Plus the ride quality on the Cat to Deere is literally night and day.. Not even kidding! Overall Cat matched Deere's price on the 244J anyways... Cat dropped over 8K on this machine! Overall more then happy with the unit!

    Thanks alot for all the great comments guys! They'll be plenty of movies and pics to come :drinkup:
