    Looks good, I like the tint. How many animal crakers per hour do you have to give for your operator? Cute picture.

    Lowe your new operator!!! I would offer that you may consider buying a few more chains for tie down if that is, in fact, how you tie your machine for transport. I too like the tint on the windows and am sure that new machine will serve you well.......

    It is a 080-3 and weighs just over 18K. I played with it this weekend and it is very stable for its size. A lot more power than a 161. I do need to shorten some of my long chains. Ideal would be four 4 foot chains with hooks and ratchet binders. This was all that was in the trailer this morning though.

    The thumb should be here in the morning (hydraulic of course) and the mulch head should be ready in a few weeks. I have a few small dirt jobs for it now.

    Thanks for the compliments. With the new vinyl stickers and the tint it sure turned a lot of heads in town today. looks like a diferent machine!

    Good lookin' machine, I like it. Not sure how friendly the DOT man would react to that much weight behind a 1 ton truck, but if the shoe fits.

    It is a sharp machine. Need to stop at the thumb and coupler store and your set.
