How does a new Deere 332 for $45,600 sound? (tax included but insurance not, foam tires, A/C and Heat, with standard bucket) How much wiggle room does a dealer have to come down? Is it about the same amount as a car dealership? Thanks, Eagle

Before commenting on a price, one should know exactly how a machine is set up. 2-speed?, Power QT?, weights? Those three items could swing a price $3000 up or down. High flow? It's pretty tough to compare without all the specs. I assume this is a wheel 332 not a track 332. If it's a CTL, that's a heck of a deal. List out the specs and I can call a contact to see if your quote is out of the ordinary. Are you trading something? Sometimes dealers will show you more for your trade and inflate the selling price, just like a car salesman.

It is high flow, foam wheels, one speed, cab with air/heat, 84 inch construction bucket included, no extra weights, no power QT, no trade. The power QT is $780 extra....is it worth it? any power QT owners out there? Thanks, Eagle

I wouldn't be without a power QT. Even if you don't use it a lot, you'll appreciate it when you do and you'll get your money back in resale value. Seems like the same can be said of 2-speed in the large frame machines.
I was told that as you listed it, that machine would sell for somewhere in the low to mid 40's in our area. However, there may be other options that add to the cost such as the sound reduction package, block heater, backup alarm, bolt-on cutting edge, and so on. Of course every market area is different.
If tons of power, lifting ability, and breakout force trip your trigger, you'll love the 332. Pretty incredible machine to run.

I'm curious what you're comparing to, unless you're also a Deere dealer. Last time I talked to New Holland, they didn't even make a machine in this class.
the new holland l 190 is the biggest but its 10 hp less than the jd

I just bought a new 332, and that price is about right for one, from my research. Up here, a 2-spd, hy-flo w/out cab and heat but a second, toothed bucket and 48" forks was about $50K, maybe a tad more. The Bobcat S320 (?), same size anyway, was close to that. I happened into an '04 model, 6 hrs on it, never been sold, in WA for $33.5K, plus a couple grand to get it here. That price is about what a lot were going for on machinerytrader, ebay, and other places, but those had about 300 hrs on 'em, no warranty, and were farther away. Keep your eyes open if you have time. Rumor has it that some places are getting crowded and the contractors are looking for small-frame machines, so new large-frames are sitting around idle. You may get lucky. j

Eagledraw: Here is one of the loaders I looked at (electronically). I dang near flew out there, too. If you are near Ohio, it may be very worth your time to check this puppy out. It LOOKS good, and surely has a warranty, if truly new. http://www.machinerytrader.com/listings/detail.aspx?OHID=6102283&GUID=CC3FB530CD1F445DB68895B5C82CAA55 Good luck. j

For the basics you have listed it appears to be priced accordingly. We would be about the same for the high flow, foam tires, cab & a/c, bucket with our 6% tax. Like Frank said though the powered quick tach is well worth it and the 2 speed would help with the resale although you are then looking at adding around 3k to the price. Good luck !!
