    Our 936 is finally going to be retired as we transition to more road/utility work we need to up grade. We talked about a 930 we given our trench boxes we need every bit of capacity and have decided we need the 938 size machine. Anyone have any experience with the K or M? Dealer has a 500 hour K which is significantly discounted but between the financing,warranty. plus a few enhancement the new M is probably a better route. Anyway back to the machines anyone here have experience with either or any of the three Cats in this loader class? How do you like the hydrostatic type transmission? All of our newer loaders have been from the medium loader department this is our first experience the new small machines.
