Just heard that the steiner 230 model is being discontinued and they do not know how long they will stock parts for the ones in the field. They said they were loosing money on each one they made. Good luck if you own one.

paul, yes the website for steiner does show the 230 model but as of my original post no new 2007/08 models of the 230 are being made. I have heard this from 3 dealers of steiners and the only new ones are the ones still sitting on dealers lots from a year ago or longer. Beware that they changed the hydraulic design and took off the acumulator to help with weight transfer, think in 2006/07 to probably save money. The hydraulics were very weak on the newer ones but the older units were fine probably 5 years old and older.

common parts like belts etc seem to be available for even much older machines. At least I am able to purchase them for product no longer manufactured. It just takes a little longer to get them, sometimes several weeks. So it would appear they may supply some parts for several years anyway for the 230. Just like anything else once the product is no longer made it becomes increasingly difficult to find factory original parts. I wish I had the money to set up a small shop to fab & build some of the small stuff like shafts, brackets etc. I think there would be some money in it as a spare parts business. I had to have a shaft made & it cost me a bit of cash even if I worked at the machine shop. So Sad

Good news: The 230 was just re-introduced to production this past spring. Evidently the felt there was a market for it and brought it back.
