    Im considering inquiring on trading my taki TL120 for a locally listed 06 case 450 ctl. Its hi flow, enclosed, 1700 hours for 27,500. This would mean I would have to find a used dingo next year. Big/little combo would be great but my justification of 2 skids at this point is very questionable. However it's hard to want to buy attachments when I know I ultimately want to change sizes. Anyway if I decide to pull the trigger and trade in number is okay, it seems this is a good price on a very good machine?

    Sounds pretty high priced to me. I owned one of those and wasn't very impressed with it.

    Those machines where about 50k new so realistically finding one that old( in good shape) for much less than 25k will be tough unless it is a turd.

    Ok that's all good to know. If this isn't known as a particularly exceptional machine I'll just wait for a bigger Tak or Cat to pop up.

    I like mine. Its major limiting factor is not being able to lift stone pallets. Aside from that, bigger would be more handy then necessity. As would a little Dingo, so that's the eventual plan. The 120 is just shy of 6000 pounds. 50 hp. I think 15 gpm. Nice and skinny little thing. Visibility is excellent too.

    Sorry - year, hours, cab, quick tach on your 120? I've been thinking for a while on downsizing to a 120 or 220. How heavy are your stone pallets?

    oh got ya'. I didn't figure you on being interested in my machine due to distance from each other. Its an 08, 930 hours. Cab, heat, AC (control knob for fan broken). Conventional manual quick attach. good tracks 50-60%. Bluestone pallets are 3-4k

    I would be interested if you're selling, that's the size tak I want and you're not far.

    I don't want to be "skidless" but I will start looking a little bit harder for a bigger machine.
