    Stupid question, I know, but here goes. Where are you guys buying extra Cat keys. Dealer? Online source? Would like to get 4 or 5 to have one in each salt truck.

    Your dealer may just comp you a few keys. If not, order 5P-8500, I'm not sure if they are sold individually or in a multi-pack.

    I am sure you could find them on ebay, but there is no guarantee they will work. I would go to your local dealer and get a few from them.

    They are a dime a dozen seriously. After my door on my old machine locked me out somehow and I had to spend $250 to get it picked as it was a Friday at 7pm no dealer open til Monday and the machine was running.

    I went to the cat dealer and spent $5 for 8 keys. The keys from my 246B work in my new 262C

    What JohnnyU said, cat key is a cat key is a cat key. I don't know about price but I've got like 10 of them floating around. There everywhere I'd just try google.
