    That's all life is though trial and error I'm trying to work it so I can buy one second hand and use it for self drive or owner operator and then put money aside trade that one in and get a new one bought outright I don't want overheads as I am getting quite a lot of dry spells so don't want something sitting in the yard not earning but paying out for it unless I'm just being daft?

    I just hire machines in for the time being as I'm fairly new to being self employed and just getting established now but when I do decide to buy my equipment I think I'll be going with yanmar as a lot of machinery is powered by yanmar and they say there bulletproof but the hire machines I use mainly are bobcat e10 and takeuchi tb228 and are both absolutley excellent I've used jcb and there a pile of utter πŸ’© in my experience didn't have the power to track up a lil bank πŸ˜‚ so I'll be avoiding them for sure.

    I think they tried to fix something that wasn't broken tbh it's like you say there cabs look a lot better and it's a reliable brand so stick to what you know I've spoke to a few people about the 210R and there supposed to be rubbish / sluggish compared to other brands? Jack

    Is that the 216? Heard there nowhere near as powerful as the 016's but there a bonny machine though Jack

    Anyone weighed in recently?

    Even mixed has gone right down at peak 12 month ago it was Β£178 a tonne now its about Β£73.81 local scrappy is stockpiling / bailing it waiting for the price to go back up too many folk at it atm so little demand Jack

    Any excavator is better than a shovel though πŸ˜‚ to me if your using a 1.5 tonner there's that odd job where you wish for that little bit more power so a 2.7 has got the necessary power and then any machine worthwhile buying after that will be a 8 tonner since the hassle is already there of getting a bigger machine shifted that's the ideal setup for my buisness anyway ☺ Jack

    I have the same ish opinion whereas I think a 1.5tonner is a waste of money as micro will go on the back of a transit tipper so no faffing about with trailers and if you do need to tow a trailer a 2.7 tonner isn't much wider than a 1.5 with 3x the digging force so micro = narrow access 2.7 tonner = grunt / digging force Jack
