There is a post for this already (Who Spring Ordered a 2020 Cat) and we ended up at 54 sleds from the members of this site.

Not sure of the total sales but my dealer likes this program at least for this year. No worries on there part if we have a crappy winter.

I'm guessing the #s weren't off the charts but I bet they were decent. Now just really curious if the 19s are going to drop in price to sell them or if they stay at current pricing? Not seeing any crazy deals on them yet.

When did they close the order banks? This blurb was published in Textron's first quarter report:

"Segment profit was down $14 million from the first quarter of 2018, largely due to the impact from the product line disposition and lower volume, partially offset by favorable performance primarily related to the Specialized Vehicles product line."

It doesn't say much except volumes were down. Might likely be expected considering the dealers orders were not what they were in years past.

I wouldn't think the 1st 1/4 2019 finance report had anything to do with the number of 2020 sleds ordered I would expect to see those numbers in the 3rd and 4th 1/4 this year.
