    make sure the tracks are there (no wear and tear) if it's the tracked version. i just rented one yesterday, and it is stuck 3 feet in mud! Ruined my sod job, or at least the potential for any profits! I've got the rental company coming out today to try to get it out.. i hate it when stuff like this happens... but hey, that's landscaping! lol

    Great price. However, the 425 will be much more turf friendly.

    That is a pretty good deal... tracked dingos are hard to find at a price like that.

    Go with tracks...had a wheeled, sold it to buy a ditchwitch 650. Much better unit with tracks.

    Curious...

    First, what are you doing laying sod in three feet of mud...if in fact you are?

    Second, what are you doing taking the machine into that much mud?

    Owned mine for a few years now and had it in some pretty muddy conditions. NEVER have I gotten it stuck, especially with the tracks...just seems to float through it. Seems more of an operator error than machine error.
