    That seems way too high on price(now I sound like my Dad...) for the 260. To me, I'd rather have a big and little(say 8 ton & your Kubota) verses two 6 tons. Could you go with a used 8 ton instead of new? Someone correct me but I've always thought the 8 ton size can handle more hours verses the mini's?

    Like he said Fire hazard and also if you working in close quarters around a crew you do not want the regen too cause a hazrd too personal.

    It is either sell the Kubota and buy a new TB260 or keep the Kubota and get a used 8 ton machine.
