    Have to spend some money due to capital gains

    looking at a used 333G and 299D3

    one has about 500 less hours but no significant difference is physical condition or warranty for either i would buy

    I have driven both, only thing i didnt really care for was teh low back el cheapo seat in the deere vs teh high back seat in the cat. Didnt seem that much different in operating just moving dirt. I will be doing a lil of everything - some rotary disk mulching from time to time.

    Curious to hear what you have to say out there one vs teh other in reliability, and like/dislikes

    there are a couple other minor things but honestly no definitive deal breakers

    i welcome your comments and thoughts since this is a major big purchase for me and a loan will have to be engaged

    thanks in advance - robert

    If you are trying to avoid CG, why are you financing?
    If you are trying to mitigate capital gains, why would you need to finance?
