  1. Obviously they teamed up with Polaris. I own a ranger and I'm seeing tons of parts and components that look extremely familiar

  2. If these were road legal they would sell like hot cakes! I'd buy one tomorrow for running around town.

  3. I looked at Kubota about 10 years ago and several other makes. I don't see any advantage to buying a Cat. It looks nice, but no cab, heat, AC, hydraulic dump bed, etc. My money is on Kubota

  4. Drove one yesterday. It seems well built and solid. Rides really good. The Polaris ranger is faster and maybe more fun for some things, but if I had to buy one of the two it would be this one

  5. Why would you not have a rear sway bar standard? Its a utility machine ya need it or you have stupid body sway without it.

  6. In comparison to both Bobcat & Deere; this is really a bare bones machine. Is your market construction sites and small farms? If so, I get it; otherwise you may have to go back to the drawing board. How about cabs, blades, snow blowers, grapples etc. Knowing your very late to the party, with your utility vehicle; one would think CAT would want to be a major factor in this space over time. CAT is a global powerhouse in heavy equipment, marine engines and countless other products. I expected much more from Catepillar with their new UTV; attachments galore, big diesel hp, cab/ac & heat a given, wanting to be a true front runner in the space. Even though I'm a Deere Guy; I have the utmost respect for Catepillar. I've been waiting awhile for Deere won't put a snowblower on their Gator; in all likelihood it probably will never happen. Now, if CAT were to offer a blower, with a cab a & heat; I'm in,,,,,,,?!

  7. To big why are these machines so damn wide. 50 inch width. If i need something this big I'll by a truck or a jeep.
