As far as the mini ex, I'm in the used market. Spoke with Atlas. They returned call a few days later and offered a couple of grey-market machines. No thanks. Volvo, receptionist took info. Salesperson called same day. I explained what I was looking for. He told me he would need to check around and would call back the following day. Do you think he called?
Anyhow, tested a low hour KX41 yesterday. Too small. I will be testing a mid 90's 325 over the weekend.
Let us know how it goes. Sorry to hear the Volvo experience didn't go well... I was under the impression that they were always eager to get out their name. You could potentially try out a Deere early-build mini-ex, like a 27C ZTS for example, by way of West Side Tractor or Buck Bros.
I went to Glenbrook South. Loved it tremendously.
