We replaced anything that was worn & needed replacing...besides being dirty most of the lines, etc were fine.

JP...thanks for the kudos! Yea we picked the bucket up from EarthTones...they had alot of nice stuff up for sale. I'd recommend taking a look if there is anything you're in the market for.

The Hyundai claimed to have 7,000 hours, but the hour meter was broken at 7,000...with the motor going like that I'm guessing the machine may have more on it than that. That's the risk of buying used equipment...ohh well! Should be good to go now...knock on wood!!

Pro Turf. Are they going out of business? I used to see them every where. I know they were doing some big retail stores/ shopping centers.

I'm not sure what their plans are. I believe they are affiliated with MacIsh, which is an excavation company.

No ballast...but it wouldn't hurt to put some on...the back will start to come up a bit if you pick up a heavy enough bucket full
