    People, CHINESE sell same equip for 30% less

    Sure government will pay top dollar for CAT equip, but the other 70% of the market will buy similar equipment from the ultra competitive chinese for 30% less.

    Remember when people used to laugh at Hyundai cars? Now they getting some of the best reviews of anything sold. Chinese hav learned, make a good product and people will come.


    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • You get what you pay for. If you want a durable, reliable machine that has replacement parts availability guaranteed any where in the world buy a Cat. If you want a machine that is guaranteed to run while it's being delivered off the lowboy and parts replacement part are virtually nonexistent buy a Chinese machine. Cat's been in this business for 85 years. They know the difference between a deep penetration weld and glue. Heat treated gears are an entire science in itself. Does Sany have a clue? What's Zoomlion know about diesel engine exhaust valve metallurgy? Nothing. Now those machines may be better than a couple dozen Chinese with picks and shovels. Have you seen the picture of them loading a wheel loader bucket with shovels? Priceless.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Good luck with that Cat guarantee's their stuff and people trust that !

    • Have yet to see A good Chinese product that will last any length of time. Even the Chinese want to buy American made goods. GM sells more cars in china than it sells here.
