The ditch witch does have more power and an additional pump but now I will be putting more money into my pocket rather than the rental company's. I also got a grading rake with the deal.

My rental spot recently got a Vermeer s450tx and the controls are the best of the few I've run(Dingo & Bobcat). In fact I had to rent a Dingo recently and HATED the controls. I'd like to try out one of the Vermeer units with a little more beef.
