Guy near me is selling one with supposedly 50 hrs on it,2399 list new, 5.5 hp honda be-300 model bedscaper by ez trench.


Asking $950...seems cheap


My question is this: why is this one 5.5 hp while i see some 13 hp monsters? whats the difference? will this thing bog down a lot or what???

Give me his number and I'll ask him if it bogs down or not.....:laugh::)...JK..That seems cheap..ask him if he lets you test it out before you buy it to make sure..

I tell you what those machines do a heck of good job on cutting new beds and shaping existing ones. I rented one last Friday for a job I am in the process of doing. I was thinking this thing had like 8 or 8.5 HP Honda on it. Man what a beast. You can make some good money with those units in a very short amount of time.

Good luck with your find. Sounds like a good deal to me.

we have the 310 and i think it works well


the diffference between the two is that the 310 has a clutch so if it bogs down it disengages in a hope to save belts

sounds like a good buy

well got it and tried 2 use it a bit....seems to work ok in semi-wet dirt....if its too wet tho it bogs right down and dies.


i also cant seem to find the oil filter location??? it says theres a sensor that stops engine on low oil, so when i tip the thing on a hill, it dies....


didnt get the darn manual...i forgot!
