I've been debating the purchase of a mini-ex off and on for two years. The used machine prices, for a good low hour 3.5-4 ton machine, always seemed just a little out of reach for me as a part-timer. My local ASV/YANMAR dealer has an 07 VIO35 rental unit w/ 266 hours for 25K. I checked it out and other than a small chunk and minor cuts in the tracks it looks and feels in very good shape (as it should for a low hour machine). It also has over two years of warranty left on it. I'm seriously considering purchasing this machine. I'm interested in hearing opinion's or actual user feedback on the machine. Thanks.
