do you guys think a 302.5c excavator can easily handle a 24" bucket. I have one on site with a 12" bucket because our 24" hasn't come in yet, I think it should be alright because our machine is not zts. Overall the machine is nice though, all controls are in the joysticks, stereo, a/c heater etc.... It's a nice new toy we decided to go cat for the service. I just want to make sure that we going with a 24" bucket is the right thing to do! I don't see getting a 12" and 18" being practical, so I hope it's alright!
