That seems crazy? I had two skids and an excavator(all bought new) and it was less then that per month?

e42 was like 100 bucks less a month, so the way i feel, i might as well get the e50 that has zts, and much more power.

cab option would only save me around 100 bucks as well so might as well spend it.

2500 a month in payments sounds like a good deal. Post pics as soon as you pick them both up.

im still on the fence about it....as of right now we primarily use machines like this for landscape install. If i used them the same amount i do now, (as little as possilble) i would be losing money. If i used them more often then i have with rentals in the past, then i still would be in the hole. I am thinking that in order to just get by until the payments up i am going to have to advertise more work, such as land clearing, storm cleanup, and whatever else you guys reccomend. lol

For the amount of work you have, I don't think it justifies buying brand new equipment. I think you'd be better of shopping around and being able to pay for something up front. That way there is no worry about how the payment is gonna be made this month..

Plus it's not like you use it every day in a production type atmosphere..so buying used wouldn't be that big of a risk as long as you didn't buy a pos..

I'm with Junior on this. Too many good used machines that will do the minimal hours you are talking about.

I personally think buying new with the CTL is a smart move unless you find a killer deal. Excavators on the other hand just do not wear near as much per hour so getting one used is no big deal. My KX161 is nearing 2000 hours and I am amazed at how the machine has almost no wear. The tracks still look new.

My CTL with 1200 hours looks like it was rolled down a cliff.LOL
