I liked the D. The breakout was excellent. It was a PINTA getting in and out of compared to the TK as was the Deere. I liked the CAT though. It was $8K more. I just like the TK for what it can do. My only issue with the TB153FR is all the zerks and moving parts. I have not had any issues but there is a lot more wear opportunities than a typical swing boom. I plan on putting a mower on it and TK finally addressed the low gpm issues that have plagued their mini excavators. That was the reason for the update. I have 2300 hours on my TK. I would have liked to haver kept it another 18 months. I got a decent trade value and a good purchase price on the new one.
