    Yes, it's a L70F. I just rent them for winter. This one has a few hundred hours. Last year we ran a L60E and loved it, so now onto the F model. We also have a L35pro that we picked up this past October. I more impressed by the amount of snow the L35 can push for such a little machine. This machine I believe is in the $ 140,000 range.
    How's your L70 holding up out west?

    Nothing like a wheel loader to stack and square up the lots.

    We were digging a hole for an underground water tank and the only way back out was to lift our 170 NH out with the backhoe. Yes, I know it looks clipped. It's not.

    I agree but iff you look at the bucket by the arm you can see the chain

    Thanks Grassy, glad you saw the chain. My guys finished digging, had the stone placed and then the developer change the depth. Only way to shave 2 inches was set the 170 in the hole move stone to one corner and scoop out with backhoe.
    So buy owning Volvo excavators it makes it easier to call and get wheel loaders in a moments notice when it's snowing.

    happened a million times to me here man

    nothing worse than that :mad:

    we did a demo one time and couldn't reach the middle of the house for the cleanup so we just hooked up the ec35 to the ec200 and lowered her down in the hole

    wish i could find the damn pics:mad:
