    As usual, Rick makes a lot of sense. I will only add that used mini-excavators are everywhere now that the economy is in the dumpster, one would compliment your tractor very well.

    Probably a better plan than my own.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Ha, I considered going the used mini ex route. I was digging about 700' of ditch with a 1.5 ton mini ex that I had rented. Dang thing wouldn't dig for crap. I wound up renting a bobcat 325 which worked just fine. On the way home from that job I spotted a 1.5 ton mini like the first one I rented for sale. Just for grins I called for the price ( guessed $3-5k). Guy say's $10k firm. I said, ok thanks, bye.

    I would like to have a mini ex but it would have to be a 5 ton machine with a cab and AC.

    My tractor is at a friends farm so I will have to get it back here before I can check to see if the cab is to small for the seat to turn (and me to get in it).
