Thanks Sean! I'm staying busy, but I always wish that I had even bigger and better jobs coming up. I'm impatient I guess

How's everything with you these days?

Nice! I'm glad to hear you have diversity in projects. I'm just starting to develop that diversity this year, and I'm excited to see where it's going to take me

Sounds interesting! You guys really like your JCBs up there huh? Other than a few backhoes, I haven't seen any around my area. I've only seen a JCB160 ex and that was up in Northern NH. What's the head look like on the machine?

I know the old jcb stuff wasnt to great, but i put about 1300 hours on the old companies js160(2006) and probably 500 on the jz140(2007) with no problems. We were hesitant when we bought the first one, but man it was a great machine. I hear the 2006 and up stuff is a huge jump from the older models. I even went to there factory in Georgia two years ago where they build the backhoes and was very impressed. Im trying to find the machine on the net now for a pic. I know the add said farm use only on it too.

Thanks for the link. That's a mean looking head. I'd be curious to see how it performed in comparison to a Denis Cimaf head or a Fecon or Bradco fixed tooth carbide head.
