    Default Re: private financing for used mini excavator?

    Seems like they're asking A lot of money for that machine... must be the cab.

    I picked up our JD ZTS 50 - a bigger machine, with a hydro thumb, 2100 on the meter for 14k 2 years ago.. But, it doesn't have a cab, just ROPS.

    Thanks, I rented a 331 for a project before. I liked it and it worked great. I would prefer a 334 for the longer stick but these machines really are not great at full reach and the longer stick may just make me get myself in more trouble then I need to I'm sure the 331 will do everything I need and then some. It is an ideal size for me (width and weight) so I hope to get things worked out by next wednesday as I am going right by the dealer (an hour away) and would love to be able to bring it back home with me when I return.

    The cab does add a lot it seems but for me the cab is worth it. I love to be able to go out to work and not have to be bundled up with 10 layers of clothes and full face masks and goggles because of the cold winds we have. Just wear a light jacket and jeans and go to work regardless of the weather. I don't think this cab has AC though as that wasn't a popular option for the most part but that is ok. The 331 I rented before was in the middle of summer without AC and I just kept the door and windows open and was fine. No different then using my open station tractors with canopies.

    Its also great to go to work and not have to waste time wiping off the seat from the rain or morning dew. The Yanmar I used last fall was an open station and every morning I got drenched as the dew kept dripping off the underside of the canopy onto me. Didn't seem like there was that much water there but it was like sitting in a rain the first 15-30 minutes.
