Ideally I would have a 5-6ton and a 10-12ton excavator. Just because I don't have a need for two machines of almost the same size.

Believe me a 5 and a 8 tonne machine are not almost the same size. I thought the same thing until I got an 8.5 tonne machine. Now i am pretty sure i own 2 8.5 tonne machines. Hands down one of the handiest size machines. Perfect size machine between our U55 Kubota and 135 Hitachi.
