Hi all!

I have a place in Maine that has a lot of rocks, trees, and needs some ditches.

Rather than renting an excavator, which would cost me many many dollars, we have decided to buy a new JD 50G Excavator with a thumb.

We decided new because the used prices are nearly as bad, and we wouldn't know a good one from a bad one, plus we get the warrenty.

Bad idea, good idea?

Thanks

hit & miss

Hard to really abuse one but its possible.

That sounds like a spendy machine.....

I'd look over the Kubotas if you have a dealer in the area.

Thats what I have and has had zero issues.. New ones will have emission crap on them unless you stay tiny.

How heavy is this machine your looking at?

I'd look at a Takehuche ? before a JD.....JD's just are not popular up here...Tractors are but not Mini EX
