    The adapter is from John Deere. They call it there Worksite Pro skid-steer-style coupler.

    244j

    How did you like the rear steering? Deere says it has the tighest turning radius. I would like that over time the rear steering would become sloppy and the machine would fish tail at travel speeds.

    How do you like your 244J? Have you had any problems getting parts? Does your rear steering get sloppy over time?

    2 I have not had anything break, do not think Deere is know for not stocking enough parts though.
    3 I drove a 244J with over 2,000 hours and it seamed just as tight, that being said any mechanical device will wear out.

    I have a customer in the Desert that has a 244J. Said when he rodes the machine it fish tails due to slop in the rear axle steering.
    Cat just introduced the 906H last year with a high speed option (22mph) and high Flow Hydraulic option. Sold one in the mountains and they love it, like it mych better then the older 906 they had previously.

    Sounds like a guy who needs some parts, like most people who own and use equipment. I believe the 244J has always had nearly 20 mph road speed. Thanks for another sales pitch though.

    I sold one to a logger a couple of weeks ago to load logs. Went up the mountain great. Loaded like a beast. First one I ever sold. I took a farmer to a rock yard in Tenessee to look at one that had 3600 hours on it. They said it had only been in the shop once, and it was for something that was their fault. They had JDB, Kubota and Deere. They buy what ever they can get the best price on at the time of purchase, but the guys who run them prefer the Deere.
