We've always used Gradall. They seem to hold up well. Cat makes an excellent product as well but it's quite a bit more expensive.

Talking Umm..

Gradall.. most of telehandlers here on island are CAT or SKYTRAK. we've got two backhoe loaders (CAT & JOHN DEERE same year 2004) for the reliability,DEERE is way better.almost all of bushings of CAT have been changed,, maybe cause of shitty operator lol ..but I like CAT more than any brands out there.. should contact Gradall dealer in the states.

Gradall has been good to us, Deere, perhaps because of dealer issues, stunk and Cat.. can't do their arrogance... BTW, what are you doing on the island?

I remember Lull's... they had a 3208 Caterpillar in the units we rented... all in all they were, at least then, a fantastic machine but Gradall had them in numbers... marketing strategies, I suppose.......
