    Yeah but a reliable machine is priceless.

    True. Gotta love a warranty. I really like the New holland C227 we used for our sandbag demo. It was good size and good power. My buddy is pricing me one w/ cab and brush mower.

    The C232 was $53k w/ cab.

    The truck and trailer only get you to the job. The machine is what's going to make you money

    Still looking at used machines. Have a local bobcat dealer with a great inventory of used machines. For the price of new CTL, he offered to make a package deal on a used T250 w/cab and used bobcat 334 excavator.

    He just emailed me back another package.
    2012 T190 w/cab (1400hrs)
    2007 425 excavator (open cab, 1032hrs)

    1yr warranty on both.
    $55k for the package

    Doesn't sound like a bad deal to me. I would rather have two machines than spend 55k on 1 new one.

    My only question would be, would the T190 be a big enough machine for the work you do?

    I don't think you'll like the 425..

    Any specific reasons? I've never ran one.

    They also have an 04' 334 w/ 2100hrs(I've ran one a few times). Would drop the package price by almost $6k.
