    Haha. I'd like to have a small skid steer. That machine is nice though.

    It's an 05. A lot of hours (about 4000) but it was really well maintained. Runs excellent and no leaks at all. Something to get started with.

    Congrats vlc. I bet you're just itchin to use it. Forget about the paint, not worth it imo.

    Nothing like a new coat of paint to make a used machine feel like new and show you take pride in the appearance of your company! Make sure to show it off here when you get done!

    Will do! I do a lot of work at $1M+ houses so appearance means a lot around here.

    Ok...so why would you buy such a used machine, if appearance is so important. These machines aren't rare, there are a lot to chose from. Heck some guy just posted pics of one he bought for $22k with like 3 attachments and it looked brand new. What did you pay for it?

    Hahaha a gallon of paint is a lot less than a new machine

    I didn't say you had to buy new.

    I'd buy a decal kit and call it good, that paint isn't that bad.

    I will if I end up plowing with it, but for now it will be for summer work, loading salt and stacking snow piles.

    Just looked up decal kits. They're a lot less than I thought they would cost. Thanks!

    Congrats on your T190! I'm in favor of new paint and decals - especially if you have the time.

    Congrats on the new piece of equipment. I like the tracks over the tires. But I'll take that nice Pete in the back ground. Makes me miss being on the road but only for a little while till I come back to my sense's.
