    Anyone ever used astec equipment? Looking around the internet and I am finding that it might be a rebadged case machine.

    Astec bought the line of trenchers/vibra plows from Case. Case still builds everything else. Astec is good stuff & and parts are still readily available.

    We had an old Case riding articulating trencher with a blade on the front that we used for large main lines. It was kind of hard to learn to operate but once you ran it a few times it worked like a charm. I loved that trencher since it and I got along fine but we got rid of it when we got a Bobcat with backhoe. :cry:
