    if you are thinking of getting a new machine once you are on your feet, i would get a machine now that will get you by for awhile (saving you a little money) and then buying one that you really want.

    Check to see if the drive motors have been changed. They had a lot of drive motor failures related to heat due to material clogging around them.

    I traded my Tak 130 for a 140 in 08. I got it with a cab and a 4 in 1 bucket(a must have). I already had a set of forks and a grapple bucket. I think I put about $5k down and my payments are $770 a month with the price at $52k new. I'm down to $8k and then I own it. It's a great machine. Adding a cab cost about $4k more which isn't much per month. But it sure is nice on the hot muggy days here in NC or the few cold days we get. Mostly,no dust,and no bugs! Small price to pay for a good loader
