I'm about to purchase a mini excavator and have been given a choice between a new machine for 40500 and a used 05 machine for 33400. The used machine is a rental with 275 hrs and looks to be in new condition and still has two months of warrantee left. I know I am going to buy one or the other just don't know if it is worth it to go new. I don't want to say what brand it is(afraid Iwill get a biased opinion)but I will say it is a 7000lb machine. Any thoughts would be appriciated since there seems to be alot of knowledge floating around here.
