    Just bought this bad boy. Its a Kobelco SS ( Super Shovel) It weighs only 600lbs. digs 36in deep and is only 19in wide. I was putting in drainage for a friend with it. It is powered by a single cylinder Kawasaki gas motor putting out a big 3.5 HP.

    That's cute. How much does one of those cost?

    BTW, the truck & trailer do look sweet.

    I paid 4,300 for it with 19hours on it. It now has 31. New they went for around 11,000. Which i would never buy one for that price. Kobelco stop making them. It is a black market machine for the USA. Everything is in JAP wirting on it. But i want a really small machine for dump stuff for my septic business. And this fit the bill. I was looking for over a year they all seem to go for 4-5k.

    That's not bad($4300)...for being such low hours. Better than a shovel.

    I thought you were going to flip it over when you sat on it. Is the platform you were standing on stable?

    The platform goes up and down on a hyd. cylinder. You put it down when digging and it makes the machine more stable.

    A guy near me has a similar one, it actually runs on 240 single phase. He runs it off a generator or house current. Walks it into basements and such to do drains, foundations repairs, footing for posts etc. Really nifty.

    Nice machine if its anything like my subcompact Massey ferguson backhoe people who don't own one or have never run one will tell you what it can't do. I just smile and laugh!
