    I own a 2009 and a 2012 for my rental fleet. Bought them when the T140 went away. They are nice machines and do everything my customers want them to do in light landscaping, backyard, pool-type jobs, but go with the joystick controls. My older unit is foot pedal controls and sticks and it works you to death on that little machine. There is so much more resistance on that unit for some reason. Long story short, no issues, are good units for me so far in the rental biz.

    I don't know if you're looking specifically at size or price also. Size is one thing but price was a big concern of mine too when purchasing the smaller machines. About a year ago pricing was somewhere around these (all with cab and heat):
    New T110 - $35k
    New Terex PT30 - $27k
    2009 Tak T120 (only 30 hours, they had three units with LOW hours) - $30k

    I ended up buying used (rc30), but if I were buying new or spending that amount of money we would have bought the Tak. Less money than a T110, way more powerful and nicer machine, but just a little heavier and wider.

    Good luck.

    i remember you considering that deal... actually think you PM'd me about the 120. I wish I couldve gotten that deal! I paid 20 for mine with 800 hours.

    Not too far away from you: http://richmond.craigslist.org/grd/3132372561.html

    Tl120 is one of my favorite machines. Several years ago you could find them quite frequently, but not so anymore. I've owned three of them...sold my last one to Morton Buildings in IL w/ 300 or so hrs. on it this past spring. Replaced it with a TL130 which is a bit bigger and a little more clumsy in tight areas, but is a beastly machine.

    Just bought a t110 about a month ago. Tried out the Terex pt 30 as well. The bobcat has way more lift capacity and load tipping, lots of power for a small machine. The Terex was a smoother and more comforable ride. Also didnt like the rear fibre glass engine cover on the Terex, especially if you tend to back into random objects....
