    The DX85 would still be cheaper with having to run the extra lines.

    Doosan is about 3k cheaper even with a 36" bucket, hyd coupler, etc

    Ended up deciding on the DX85. The machine is in Boston right now at port and should be here within the week I'm told. Ran the KX080-4 and DX85-3 today one last time and the 85 we just liked better.

    Cool, can't wait to see some pictures. Are you keeping the old grapple or getting a Towtem for it?

    So are you looking for an operator for the 85? :waving:

    Congrats on the purchase. The 85 is a great machine.
