    I just cracked the hood and have a new one on the way. I was lucky it was just the hood and not my face.

    Nice machine! How do you like the Bx? Is it enough for the jobs your doing?

    Hey guys, sorry it took so long to reply. I don't get on here that often.
    I like the angle blade, I haven't had to backfill a long trench yet, but when I do it should help a little. I would say that the thumb and enclosed cab are the options I like the best - in that order.

    It is a little small for the jobs that I do, but is way better than nothing. When I started out I was shoveling dirt (gravel, mulch, base etc) on and off an open trailer by hand. That sucked and took too long. The BX-24 is a great machine and has served me well. For the last two seasons I have used it almost every day and will keep it. It is also easy on lawns.
