    I am going to try and rent one this week on a 70 yard top soil job to see if I like it. So what are the cost break downs on it what does the basic unit cost? I think all I will need for starters is the bucket with teeth and the land planer perhaps the reg bucket as well. But 33,000 is a bit steep for my budget for fall so all the info I can get is helpfull.

    As for losing helpers that doesn't even phase me any more I want to be less dependent on part time slackers.

    I let you know but i move 22 yard in about 3hrs could been faster but had to get use to the manchine. As far as losing workers i lost them because of the manchine. I will say its a steep price,but if you use this everyday.. you should get your money back in a year..

    I got to demo a mt50 today and I fell in love with the little guy quickly I moved 70 yards of top soil in under 3 hours on a 30-35 degree slope that was as loose as soil can be. And I have never used anything like it before so there was a learning curve. We got the quote and come September I will be the proud owner of an mt52. The basic machine is 15,600 and with the attachments I am going to get its brings it to around 19-20k. I personally can move 15 yards of top soil by hand in wheel barrels in a day which isn’t bad with this I think those numbers could be 200-300 yards in a day so I didn’t really have to think to hard on it.

    Yeah Its been a week know since I had it. MAn let me tell you... Its save a lot of time. Today I graded,level and pour 9 yards of cement in one day. Profit 2200.

    This would've taken two days the old school way..... Profit 1500 ...

    YOu should get the 4 in one bucket if anything that little monster does the job.

    Go hard nose on your salesman. Each job you do from here till you get it save half the profit. To put towards your manchine.

    Go in there with cash and demand the most for your money. Those dam attachments has a high mark up. I told you 33,000. It was 29,000 out the door with tax

    Was anything wrong with the MT50? Curious to know how they've held up.
