You will love them! I spent most of my day on my 2006 267B, and they are a joy to run. The 257 I imagine would be a really nice size because you still have good lift capacity, plus you can get the vertical lift, and above all it would be easier to transport!

The 257 b3 is the newest machine they have released its a 75 hp machine with ample amounts of power compared to the old 257. We have two more but things are wide open right now.

What are your uses? Curious why not have #2 be a bigger machine.

We use them for grading track homes and thats pretty much it. Every now and again we use them to auger holes for bigger trees and we use them on a daily basis to move sod. We had two machines before and traded one in so now we have three. The next machine up is a 257 and much heavier and we will run into cdl issues whe we tow it. In all honesty the 277 is a little to much machine for us. This new 257b3 is the best of both worlds.
