    Sorry about the piss poor pics but its all i had at the time. Drove to Conneticut on tuesday and back on wednesday to buy this (ended up being an awesome trip as i was laying along I-80 5 feet off the road at 10pm to change a hub, tire, wheel on my trailer...............). CAT 277, 2,000hrs, good tracks, and just had a full service done by CAT. I have a 10ft ProTech box thats goin on it.

    It was more of a weekend warrior for the guy who had it and not much of an everyday machine. It is unbelievably clean. I thought i was getting a really good deal until i got there to see it in person and realize how GREAT of a deal i was getting...

    My truck holds the load good because i have airbags on the rear. I've hauled a D5 before on a dual tandem gooseneck with the dozer right were it should be, between axles on trialer and truck, and the truck will sit level

    16K. I've been looking at buying one for about 4 months now. It was about 4-5k less than anything comparable that i've seen. Only thing i've really seen in that price range around here would be a CAT 247 (which is underpowered to a comparable T190) or a T190 with a lot of hours and is in rough shape. Those are roughly 65hp machine and this is an 80hp. Wasnt goin for one this big at first but h*ll, when the price is right why not???
