How much are you seeing for TB016 now?

I think ours was 10k with 1600 hours.

Its a machine that you can get parts for and has resale value.

I see the yanmar as one of those 'not new enough to be relevant' but not old enough to have classic value. I'd most likely pass, it would literally have to be 3500 bucks or something. would be hard to ever get rid of.

Yanmar is pretty popular. They made many OEM machines

I can get a tb016 for 20k new or I see them for 10/12k used around me. When they come up.... I think I might wait until my dealer gets the kobelco zts in before I pull the trigger

It looks like it's just had some fresh makeup. I'd wait for a Kobelco baby unless you could 'steal' it but from the add the guy seems firm for what that's worth. I've seen Kobelco/Case/NH's in the low teens and you would have a ZTS which in a baby mini is important(I think).

You can't really go wrong even up to $4500-$5k on that machine.

I bet he has a buddy bid it up since he was so firm on his price before but you might get lucky.
