    Anyone had any experience with a Yanmar Vio75.

    I've seen one in action last summer, very quick for it's size and bloody quiet, I think it was one with that funny curve in the boom.

    I've ran a Vio50 but am looking at buying a 75.The 50 is very nimble and had an offset undercarriage.I really like the Yanmar diesels,not to mention the hydraulic couplers.

    We just bought a 55. Works well for our application (digging pools). We also bought a breaker, wrist bucket and it came with thumb, pin grabber, and cab. I'd imagine the 75 would be more stable for placing rock steps or large retaining walls.
