I have a class A CDL anyway and I think I'd rather have the power and reach and push. did you buy yrs new or used. I've seen a 2009 with 383 hrs for $50k with a cab,angle blade and a hammer. I'd deff have to add the thumb tho. Pricing what i would want new would run up to about $75k according to Kubota's website.
I did see today why I want a bigger machine tho. we were delivering rebar to a pool jobsite and the excavation guys unloaded it with the bucket/thumb and lifted it over the fence. Thats the kind of stuff I need a machine to do.
