Looked at both on paper but could only get my hands on the 2240 last December. Bottom line for me was the dealer and service. I went with Hoobers, they have a lot of Patriots running in PA,MD,Virginia and Delaware. There reputation in my neck of the woods( south central PA) is excellent. Boy have I been impressed with the folks they have selling and servicing this machine, very knowledgable, very customer oriented. I love the ride and quiet cab the most. I have the Viper 4,(latest upgrade 2.0) with accuboom, autoboom,and smartrax steering. It is all new to me and that is where Hoobers really shine with there help and support. Only have about a thousand acres on the machine, so I can only say so much about that, but so far likeing it very much.Anyone run one of these yet, how is it working for you?
