Sled: ZR8000 C-Tec 2
They are looking at the product in the field, and trying to clear the pipeline. Only building what is needed, and moving existing inventory from dealers that have it, to those who can sell it.
There are still a lot of dealers buried in machines because of the order requirements in the past. The old cat would force these dealers to order even more sleds by offering to pay the interest on their current inventory.
Neither the 3000, or 7000 where good selling machines, and I'd bet there is more than a years supply of 7000's already sitting on dealers lots (we sold more ZR 8000's in the last 2 seasons, than all years and versions of 7000's combined). If you want one you'll have no trouble getting one, or any other model (except possibly 19 9000's as they cut production on them)
