Well, word has gotten around town that the fat man (that's me) is shopping for a larger mini. Thankfully, I haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet and quite honestly, I am enjoying the attention AND the free lunches. The Gehl dealer is coming at me hard with their 603 model (12,500 lbs and a digging depth of 13' 7") and I am really impressed with all of the numbers both financially and performance wise...but it has an 18" overhang. Kicks a$$ in every aspect but I am having a tough time getting by the tailswing. Now Gehl also has a 753Z which IS zero tailswing, but it may come in 15-20k more, but the machine also weighs in at 17,000 lbs and a dig depth of 14'2". Do I need anything that big, not really, but it sure would be nice to have in a zero tailswing package, all at 2.9% financing for 60 months...after letting me rent it for 6 months with 100% of rent going to the purchase price if I buy it. If I don't, I simply turn it in. How many of you guys, if any, use machines that have a traditional tailswing?
