I can't wait to get one myself. At the price they will sell for we will probably not have enough supply to meet the demand.

The impression I get then its going to be cheap if your thinking demand is gonna overcome supply issues. That would be good. What $$$$ is cheap ;-)

Makes you wonder, if CAT can build a small engine like that for a Cub why were or what was the problem with the CAT powered GMC and Chevy pickup trucks that GM had stated was coming. Last I heard CAT had problems getting the engine small enough to be able to be installed in a 3/4 ton pickup, so GM opt'd to go with their Duramax (Isuzu) diesel instead. Nothing wrong with an Izusu by any means, but I sure would like a CAT powered pickup myself. (dream on Roy, dream on)

My understanding about these new Cat engines is that Cat purchased a company that built these engines a few years ago. I just can't remember who it was, but they also (CAT) own a company named ASV that builds rubber track style loaders ( and believe me they are fun to operate, wish I had one) that use these same engines. Nice engines. The new 5000 series models with four wheel drive ag tires and a Dahatsu Diesel ( partly owned by Toyota) engine are going to sale for $ 8499.95. More details as they unfold.
