The hinge pin height and added weight capacity being the 2 biggest features.

In regards to the turbo, trenching is our most demanding task we have put on the hydraulics to date. I have been really pleased so far. Trenches plenty fast, plenty of torque (we bought the high-torque trencher attachment). It also bores really well as well. I'll have to post a video of that.

Would like to get some more attachments, but that will be in due time.

As far as upgrading from a 650, I don't know if there is enough pros to merit the expense. However, If you were looking to either add a unit or to relieve a high hour machine I would highly recommend the 750. (or 755 if you can warrant the $3000 extra dollars.)
Good to hear. If it does everything you need then I see no need to spend the extra 3k. I agree these machines are head and shoulders above the dingos/bobcat/boxers etc. Looking forward to more pics of your work.

All but Fox are still there. Got a buddy in the hort program there now and talking about Dr. Wade singing Mr. Frog. Good times!!!

Brad, what took you to LA?

Yes, Mr. Frog. Takes me back to a simpler time. Fox Retired 1/2 way through my Sophomore year. Shockey took her place. Enjoyed all of my professors in the College of Plant Sciences (has some other ridiculously long name).

Few pics from most recent job. Hydromulch to follow in a few weeks when risk of frost is gone.

Have quite a few pictures to add, but not much time to keep up. I'll try and get everyone caught up on our season here as things should slow down a little with winter.

Anyways, here's a quick pic I took today in the rain. Ryegrass came up quite well and pansies, cabbage and kale looking pretty good too for only being in a week and a half.
