    Looks good, is it just me though, or are those tires small?

    Ran a W-11 at a nursery I worked at a few summers ago. It was an awesome machine that never seemed to be down for repair even with god knows how many hours that thing had

    i have to use its twin! but yours is way nicer and has baby tires and no fenders? maybe ours just has too big of tires that could be why its so powerless? i cant stand using it no power and backwards from the cat i learned on the cab moves with the front i hate it but i prob wouldnt think that if i learned in it

    Curious what you paid? I'm watching this model to make a purchase this summer.

    Looked at a bunch of them ranging from $7000 to $20000 and ended up finding this one for $13000. It needs a couple of little thing but nothing that will cost much or keep it from working. This one was by far the best deal that was clean and didnt leak anything. I also liked this one over some of the other ones because the bucket was bigger its a 2 yd!

    If you're not running it, make sure the person either has run or quickly gets used to sitting on the bucket instead of the motor...Occasionally, I run a late 70's Hough at my shop during the winter that I learned on last year where you sit on the bucket, it sure is different!!

    I think I might have looked at those! I shoped around for three months now and after test driving a couple of cases, dressers, and a trojan, this one was the tightest and cleanest with NO LEAKS!!!!!! Couldnt even believe it!!!
    Thanks for the input Guys!!!! I plan on putting a 14 foot on her so soon as I get it back to my shop I will put some more pics up.:salute:

    Still in Iowa. DOT permits wouldn't allow the freight company to run it here due to the holiday and time restrictions. Hopefully by mid this week. big fiasco with one of monsterfreight.com's vendors.
