    WELL UP UNTIL THIS YEAR OUR V-255 HAS BEEN BULLET PROOF. i BLEW A HOSE ON WED, HAD IT FIXED AND FRIDAY EITHER THE SAME HOSE OR A DIFFERENT ONE BLEW AGAIN. i AM GETTING SICK OF THE DOWN TIME FROM THE MACHINE. i WANT TO JUST FIX IT AND KEEP IT AS A BACK-UP AND BUY A NEW ONE, OURS HAS 850 HOURS. mY QUESTION IS HAS ANYONE USED THIS NEW ZAHN BY DITCH WITCH. i WANT TO KNOW HOW IT PULLS PIPE. i REALLY LIKE THE ATTACHMENTS AND THE 30HP ENGINE. i JUST WANT TO KNOW IF EVERYONE THOUGHT A NEW V-255 WOULD BE A BETTER CHOICE THAN THE ZAHN. THANKS

    AND THE 410 WILL PROB BE TOO WIDE TO GO THROUGH A GATE.

    You're going to blow a hose now and again. There's probably a preventative maintenance program for that sort of stuff.

    Or you can go hose-free, the old-fashioned way!

    It can be removed, but not without a lot of effort.

    Its super handy for digging start holes, or trenching in areas you don't want to plow. Great all around machine.

    It seems like its to much for pulling joe homowner's 5 z system....

    If i ran that 4-10 that trencher would be collecting dust in the shop..
    but we live in different soil climates.
