2015 Dig It M2208
Should I buy a 2015 “Dig It” M2208 loader/backhoe for $8000?
It has 912 hours on it.
Kohler engine.
Nothing terrible appears wrong with it.

You’re right, that’s pretty funny!

That is the exact one! Do you think 912 hours is any sign of overuse?

I wouldn’t pay that much for a gas motor version.

Should I go for a reduction of +\- 10% or just avoid this entirly?

I know nothing about these, but I would sure hope that the bucket and backhoe cycle much faster than what the video showed.

I had athe towable model of a dig-it and was pleased with the way it was set up and handy since it even had hydro wheel motors.
I think it's priced on the high side but that's the way things are today but it wouldn't hurt to make a lower offer either.

Thanks. Another member saw a video and proposed that itmay be too slow in its hydraulic motions. Do you have an opinion about how fast the digging arms cycled?
