    Thought I'd share a picture or two of one of my newest toys for all you equipment junkies.

    So you buy, use and then resell? Nice, what year & hours?

    What brand are those tires on the machine? I need new tires for my skid and was looking at those but do not know manufacturer.

    Its a 2003. hours unknown, digital meter not working but rig goes good. And yes, thats why I try to do, buy, use, resell as not needed,etc. Keeps things interesting. I just recently sold one of the d-3's and the thomas screener, really hated to see that go.

    Those tires look like Bulky Hulks by Galaxy, if I am correct. We're definately getting those tires for our 216 when the need arises, I hear they have tons more traction than a standard R4 aggressive tread.

    Looks like someone needed some backing lessons. If it is any help or simply trivia it takes me about 1,2-1,500 hours to wear the paint off of the handles (XT series) on a machine we are in and out of a lot. Judging by the scraped up rear uprights and the extreme duty tires and the new bucket which did not come with the machine I would guess it has been worked hard in some type of recycling type application.

    Ya those tires are meant for smooth riding on pavement with the flat tread pattern.

    The bucket on the machine looks like a chip bucket for moving topsoil or sawdust. Could have been used to scoop up scrap metal.
