I have also found a couple used smaller Vermeer ones on ebay, but I don't think they make them anymore, and if they do, I haven't found any. I also briefly looked at the Bandit HB19XP. What do you guys recommend?
I'm looking to buy one to. I'm going to buy it used. Costs less and if it breaks, I can fix it and it still should cost less.:cool:
I watched a video on you tube of the bluebird and the front seamed to short with not enough reach to keep it out of the hole. I think the DR is very similar. I rented a Dosko,they have a long front, but for realy big stumps it still wanted to go in the hole. However, if its a good deal and will work, get it.;) Just my opinion.:)
