Decided to add one to the arsenal. Don't want this thread to turn into a what machine is better, etc, just two main questions. Anybody with real world experience with the narrow and wide tracked machines and any main differences in digging power, stability, etc between the two? We work on alot of properties where it would probably be easier to have the narrow tracked machine to get into backyards, but don't want to sacrifice too much for it. Second I'm looking at new with 0% finance about $375 a month($22000ish.), or a 2009 with 150-300 hrs ($13500ish) $225 a month. What is the hour point wear the machines start to really wear? I never buy anything new but am wondering if in this case it might be worth it.
