We are having a new 50 series Towtem built for it. I had a few special requests as far as the clamshells go on that grapple. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Should hold up better than our Rotobec ever did. That thing was one big weld constantly getting reinforced and nothing seemed to help it.

I'll be the majority operator of that one for now. We are going after more demo work and if we purchase that DX235 next year we might need another operator while I'm doing rock walls.

Thanks! Went in one last time to talk numbers and made the deal on the 85. Went and sat in the one they had there and the KX080 one last time. Going to be a little different from operating the CX75 I spent 9 years in.

I agree, the price, cab confort, extra lift capacity, hyd coupler, and ease of service seems like it couldn't be beat in our area... Plus it will match the 180.
