    So go buy the KX121. Didn't Kubota Finance already approve you? Who cares about the worn pins and bushings. You aren't gonna be running it 8 hours a day every day. It will be lucky to see 8 hours in a month. Buy it. Make some money with it. Make the repairs. If your gonna nitpick a machine then just go buy a new one and watch it depreciate as you leave the lot. There is nothing perfect in this world. You obviously haven't found anything better yet so just buy it. Don't say there aren't any used machines out there either cause that's bullsh!t. There's more deals on equipment right now than there ever has been in your lifetime. You don't have a trailer yet so buying one to fit the machine is no big deal. A f450 should handle a 14k trailer no problem, I don't care what kind of hills you have. Unless it isn't maintained properly or the driver is an idiot. I don't know, maybe you shouldn't do it afterall...:rolleyes:

    Should i buy gas today? I have a half tank. hhmm What do you guys think? Wait till tomarrow? Maybe the price will go down. The market is improving, well except for my neighborhood. But if i buy gas today i have to emerge from the basement. Do you think my truck will make it to the gas station with 1/2 tank?

    Being a 6.0 it may not even crank!

    but cummins and duramaxes suck! They don't last 2 days in the mines before they are traded in!
