    What size material are y'all running the new 299D in? I currently have a ASV PT100 with a Fecon head. I run it in a lot of 4-6 inch trees. I'm considering a new machine and been looking at Cat.

    I would say a average of 6-8inch diameter have taking down a ton in the 15-18 inch diameter range.

    I ran A 2013 Terex on a demo & it wouldn't compete with my 2008. Several years ago I ran a 297c and the CAT salesman said it wasn't as strong as my ASV. Just was wanting a honest opinion from someone who has ran the new 299d XHP on its power compared to mine or over the earlier CAT mulchers

    I checked it out. Not a bad deal but really considering trading mine in. I'll keep you in mind though. Thanks for your input

    I've not ran the Terex to compare it to, I do have a 299C and the 299D XHP is a lot better. The recovery time on the head is quick. Were in 6 to 8 inch most of the time with no trouble. I'll agree with Cat 297, no regrets.
