    As the title states... im looking for a machine. Im going to need it before April, but the sooner i purchase one the less ill have to think about finding one.

    If its a 773, i only want the turbo models. I only need a bucket and forks, so any other attachments can be kept.

    If you have one or know anyone that does, please let me know!

    Hour range?
    Cab/heat or open cab?

    Of course, the lower the hours, the better. Im not sure if im willing to get into anything over 2500 hours, unless there is an offer i cant refuse on the table.

    As far as cab... it really does not matter. Same deal with heat. Im sure i might eventually put this machine to work in the winter, but its main focus will be for my concrete business in the summer. I can always add enclosures later if i need to.

    Oh yeah... and foot controls are a must. I would take something that had the option between the two... but im used to foot controls.

    Yeah, im going to need at least a 773 turbo.

    Im looking for something that lifts 1800+.

    My most ideal machine would actually be a S205, but i have been having troubles finding them for the price range im working with right now.
