I thought all Canadains had Grimme planters? 260 is definitely giving up some power over a 290. The Kobelco doesn't seem to spec all that well against other 250's. If you demo one and like i'll be impressed.

Sepm- no this isn't for the 407 extension . I know way to many people who have been burned by the contract administrator on the 407 east extension.

Grimme does have the market here for potatoe equipment not sure why they don't run them. I know all there harvesters are Grimme

St Williams Nursery, We are supplyling all the stock, working as a general contractor on the planting installation, along with working with many plant distribution agents *such as geoscapes* to get the material installed.

Work is picking here the past few weeks and the demand has called for some more equipment. So here is the zero turn 2014 Kobelco 260 srlc. It is will be ready for pickup on friday equipped with a indexator rototilt Rt60-B with a hultdtins grapple, 72" and 48" bucket. The other machine we are going to try out for a few days first because it is a used machine and then make the decision. It is a 2007 Hitachi 270 with a d and s grapple and a 48' bucket. The main purpose of the 270 will be for ripping out stumps and processing them before they are fed into the grinder.

I'm pretty set on the new holland. Still waiting on some numbers from kubota.

The dealer offered me a deal on two attachments of my choice from new holland. I think I'm gunna get a brush mower and a large root rake/grapple.
