Nice machine! How did u equip the machine? i.e.-buckets, coupler, thumb etc. Any interior work? And what type of jobs do you do?

Looks nice. I have a 304 and 311, The 304 get the most use. Moves easy and does more than people think.

I do alot of subdivision work.....digging basements ( 315 Cat ) but all utilitie work is with the mini x...Septic work, again mini X and 289C skid steer...Cat machines are overpriced for sure but never an issue yet. Machine has 4 year ext warranty, angle blade, hydraulic coupler kept my 12 inch and 48 inch ditch bucket, auger and hoe ram , Don't plan to live forever so might as well have good equip...LOL

I had chance to spend some time with a 304E this summer. I was actually pretty impressed with it, especially their new COMPASS system (no idea what it means) that allowed for a lot of customization- flows, eco mode, pattern changer, keyless security code, different preset operator settings and some other stuff I didn't play with. Curious to hear your review.

Hydraulic coupler on a mini is awesome. Yanmar has been doing this forever as standard equipment and it's a great way to go.
