yeah...make up your mind man. There is no easy or perfect answer here.
in a perfect world you would have both small and large setups...I'd really like to ad another excavator approx 80 size sometime to give us 3 setups.
Mini setup is Terex PT30/Tak TB016
Mid size is Takeuchi tl130/ Deere 35 D
Big would be our cat wheel loader and the 80 size excavator.
One is never going to do it all. But i do see the value in the smaller equipment...the small stuff has proven a good niche/value adder for us.
