Went to the Vermeer Dealer this afternoon.
I drove an S600TX that they had for rental, and it is a diesel.
Has more than enough power, tracks are 32 inches wide, with the bucket being 42 inches wide. I also love the joystick controls compared to the boxer with the four levers.
That will give me enough room with the tracks to not mess up my paver base, and wide enough to dig out the paver base and have a little bit wider base for the pavers, if that makes sense.
I'm excited, and on top of it the other guy who wants drainage done called today. He wants it done of course, but, he is going to have to wait now. I might be able to get it done before the first hard freeze, but I'm not betting on it.
