Been looking for the best of the best what i need is a skid loader,mini excavator,and wheel loader in one machine. jcb has a mini-backhoe with loader i think its a tx1 model looks great but the price isn't 65,000. another thing i looked into was a powertrac 400 http://www.powertrac.com i like the idea articulated no chewed up grass etc. but the thing looks to much like a homeowner machine. i want something to last ,kinda small,and built. can you help? I like the bobcat system but my banker won't but then again how many bankers would.

hmmmm

Not sure if this is what your looking for but do a search on the web for terramite. They sell mini backhoe loaders and if I remember right they are a lot cheaper than the JCB (probobly for a reason though) They are very popular at rental stations, so maybe check at your local rental dealer and see what he's using. Good Luck!

thanks guys I like the little terremite tractors they look like they might work except leg room would be a factor. I'm 6'4" i might look like the jolly green giant on that. that power trac machine is nice the trailer makes it. any others like the power trac.

Just from the machines mentioned here the jcb is by far the superior of the bunch.If it were me I would buy a popular named skid loader and put the backhoe attachment on it.One other option you have is a schaeff, you can find there web site at http://www.schaeffusa.com it is the last machine on the construction page.This machine usually has buckets where the attachment are shown on this machine. It might be a little large for what you are talking about but is as close to a do all machine as you will find especially since you included wheel loader in you criteria.
