    im still looking for a open day to run it, he says to call the night before and he will have it there in the morning. do you think there is enough diffrence between a 305 and 304 to justify 5k more in price? it has about 7 more hp and 8'' more dig depth.

    bucket break out i think is a lot better on the 305 to check the specs.. 305 is 5,000 more then the 304 there has to be a few reasons why then

    im not sure what broke it, abuse from the previous owner. i havent used it yet but im sure it will handle it just fine.
