Bought a new toy today!

I looked at a lot of new machines and I ended up buying a Kubota U55. The dealer is putting a quick coupler and a thumb on it for me next week. I picked it up yesterday for a demo and decided to keep it. I also liked the Bobcat E50 but Kubota has 0% interest.

looks like a nice machine How much does it weigh?

0% interest? No such thing. They baked the interest into the machine cost!

The weight is 12,280

They might have worked the interest into the cost but it still ended up being cheaper in the end. Plus I got a pretty bit discount because another company bought it and the financing fell through, it has 35 hours on it. It was still considered a new machine with the full warranty.

On small jobs I will tow it with my 550 but when I'm on a bigger job that I have multiple pieces of equipment on I have a hauling company move everything at one time.
