"small" @ 300 customers?

I guess everything's relative.

I have WAY (understatement) less accounts. I'm in the market. But, cost is going to have to weigh in (in a big way). I'm currently looking at the CC XP S/S. @ $3,700.00, it fits my needs (unless I find a SMOKIN' deal on one of the more appointed machines).

If money were no object, I'd be looking at another unit. For my needs, I still think this machine will work fine.

T3000 hands down, no questions asked. I've used them all, I love my T!

I just turned 314 hours on my xp, great value for the price, in fact you can buy 2 xp's for the cost of most other ride ons!

That's great to hear. It would take me YEARS to see 314hrs. roll over. My only concern with this machine is mobility. My main use for it will be on 5 properties, totalling 20acres. No issues I can foresee on those. I'll also be looking to use it on MUCH smaller parcels, too. I am a bit concered, there, on what I'll have to use to get to areas that "may" (my fears could easily be a product of my ignorance on how nimble these machines really are) present issues. Planning on trying to demo one, in the near future.

how tall is it?

I saw this one today. Note the tank is strapped on a sheet of plywood where the roll bar was. Looks a little top heavy to me. (no it ain't mine)

Ditto with Equity Green
