Which Micro

Recommended Posts

So new tax year and time to invest the ISA into another digger as the returns are far better than any of the banks.

 

Looking at a micro, has to be servo controls so seems its Kubota u10SL or the bobcat clone.

 

Any operators of either offer advice ?

 

What are they new 11k ?

The yanmar sv12-2A looks a good machine but £19k including vat and the bobcat e10 is £16k including vat 

They both look really good as does the kobelco sk10 sr

19k??? Think they’re taking the piss mate- yanmar dealer near me was asking nearer 12.5k plus vat. 19 will buy you a fully cabbed 1.8tonner... Yanmar are great machines though.

Just tried to screenshot the quote but my phones decided to be a funny f****r but yeah total include vat £18,312 plus documentation fees that's for the one with servo controls not the joysticks in front mind I know the sv08 is really cheap though

Not doubting you- but that seems a lot for a 1.2 when most 1.8tonners aren’t costing that. Was that total cost buying on finance? As likely you may pay a few grand on interest.

Just been looking at the email and finance is 5% apr on top so that is the actual quote just for the machine

Hi again

 

Just looked at the link and the 2 machines have got the wrong images the voi 10-2 image is actually the voi 12-2 so it's £17,208 for the machine and here's the quote I got

Yeah- I noted the images were wrong, I think that’s mad money when last year Dealer offered me a brand new Hitachi zx19u for £14000 plus VAT no cab 3 buckets etc.
