another thought that to me favors the tlb is maintenance expense. i am over 1000 hours on my machine and not even close to shopping for new tires. outside of grease maintenance expense has almost been non existant. just one example and i do concede there are jobs where a tlb is a pig compared to a mini, i just don't run into them that often. for the original poster to add a tlb to his existing equipment he would have all bases covered and the best of all worlds. i might instead of looking at the 110 look instead for a used full sized machine to compliment the smaller ones he already has.
