    More of a "want" than a "need."[/QUOTE]

    That is so true. I bet if there was a poll - and everyone being honest - i would dare say most purchases are exactly that. I am with in regards to mowers. I always bought all mowers new, except the two WAMS I run. Couldn't justify 50-60K for a mower. I bought ours a few years ago around 10-12K range. They produced $$. Sure one can say what about break downs etc but no matter which way you slice it - bottom line is what it is about at the end of the day, month, year. Big ticket items for me - like a new skid for example - that is a machine that is used all year for us, and I look at around 750 - 1000 hours / year. But for me to go out and by a new WAM cuz it is pretty looking and were only running 30 hours a week on a machine - that is like bying the new DINGO. Sure is going to generate X over 3 years but..............................

    I never said anything about buying a new one:confused:. I'll most likely buy used and I never said I'll make 120k just because of the dingo. I said a chunk of that 120k will be because of the dingo and its increased productivity/lower costs on sod installs. I'm getting killed when I rent a full size and don't need the size 90% of the time. I can't find anyone that rents a dingo. One place rents a Bobcat MT55 but its less than $100 more for a full size one.

    Finding a used 525 is a pipe dream... and if you do find one they will want 18k for it. And you did say The amount of 120k thats earned DIRECTLY because of the Dingo will also make it worth while.

    But anyway, good luck finding a used mini skid. If you can keep an eye out for a month or two, you can find a great deal. I have seen boxer's go on ironplanet for 5-7k w/ very low hours. I have purchased a couple of mini skids for $3500 and resold them, so the deals are out there. You will never find a deal on a 525 though... there is too much demand for that model.

    MRSOPS: - So far great. I got the advanced hand controls - that way all guys are able to switch over to what there comfortable with. I looked at the Cat, NH, Case, JD but bottom line was service, dealer and location. Therefore bringing my choices down to BC or NH. I clearly liked the BC better. If I had needed a bigger machine - joystick controls hands down. I ran a few of those on a few grading, backfilling jobs we had and loved them. Thing was I don't need that big of machine - kinda like a "want" not a need and opted for the S205. With the AHC's, bucket, 2 speed, high flow it listed for 37K. Only thing I wish I could do is increase responce time on the up/down/dump cycle, and maybe bend the arms a bit so when i go forward there not in the glass of the cab or as I have done already - knock out the little luvers on the vents cuz the sticks hit them at full speed forward. But so far - all we have used it on has been snow and with the said - it has been great for us.
