Mini Excavator advice

Recommended Posts

With me i can work any machine you give me, but the easiest to work id say is a kubuta machine or a jcb, even if you have no exp, dosent take half hour to get the hang of using the machine.

Most of the machines I have owned have been good, and I have been through a few. It all depends how well you treat them and complete repairs and servicing as required.

 

As an investment I run mine into the ground, can't be doing with buying the latest new toy on the market and most of them have lasted a good few years.

the company I work for runs a fleet of takeuchi diggers from 1.5 tonne to 8tonne including conventional and zero swing versions also 8 tonne wheeled, brilliant machines imo,far better than some of the other makes I have used over the last 20+ years as a plant operator.

I know where I would spend my money if I was in your position!
