Same as Ian has, I was impressed by it when. I helped him on a job he had it on but definitely helped with Ian as counterbalance on the back against a normal sized man emoji12.png
I belive finch arb wants 8.5k for it with 2 grabs and bucket but not the grab in that picture

Would worry me if it had Chinese engine interesting track design

I might be wrong but I think it has a decent engine in it not something spurious

It has a Yanmar engine in it so comparable to a Kubota. Was selling due to needing a bigger machine but not sure if the money is going on a MEWP now or not 😕 Need to release some capital to stop me borrowing too much! 😄

 

It is a good machine, its no avant, vermeer or multione but it is a lot cheaper. It was all I could afford at the time but on to bigger stuff now the company is bigger. Will be sad to see it go but I will probably rent one locally till I get another. I dont want to lift anymore timber into the truck lol.

Another vote here for the cast workyquad. Brilliant bit of kit, down to 740mm wide on its narrowest wheels I believe but with 100kg counter weights and 70kg operator it'll lift around 400kg (That's absolute max I would think without making it unsafe). Really well built and simple machines too with decent honda/kubota engine options

The thing with the mini skid loaders is that they look handy- but they're always without fail on their tiptoes, looking hard to control when you see YouTube videos.

 

Has anyone a link to a video of them in use where the operator looks in control, doing repeated cycles?
