    I am quite special.. ;) :cool2: :laugh:

    O31 is the old model 310 is the newer one, but I talked to the friend of Dads that trims trees and he said the 310 is a lot better saw than the 290, the 310 just has more balls even though they run the same bar and chain for only $50 more you can have more power..

    It's pretty good. It has a Yanmar , but the new ones have Kubota's. When I bought it you couldn,t get a hi flow Tak, only a Gehl or Mustang. It has been very reliable. You have one.

    I have a Tak TL140 but I have been eying the new TL250.
    The mulching would be just an additional income so the machine would have to be strong at grading which the Takeuchi machines are.

    I had a problem with cooling so I added the external cooler . It really extends the day. It has about 28 gals of hydraulic fluid on board wich is the key. I read on here a lot that skid steers are not for mulching. This is not the case. Most of these brands only have 8 to 12 gals aboard. Very bad. At 40 gpm you are cycling the same oil 3 or 4 times a minute. My 2 cents. You cant go wrong with the Takeuchi. Very Robust. Simple to maintain. Simple undercarriage. Love it.
