Seems up here they are real big ones or little ones. That is a nice size to haul.
I feel we stole it for $25,000 - - - weighs in at 44,000# - - - 11' wide - - - this was a one owner machine by the biggest "basement contractor" in the area. Very tight and we even got the dealer to do a 2,000 hour service - - - we ended up paying $1,500 for the 30" bucket plus $300.00 shipping - - - I did not want to drive to Wisconsin for $300
I am still looking for a quick coupler for it. I have a manual thumb I will install and with the fence rows we will be taking out I want everything on the end of the boom as simple as possible as it will be feeding fire a lot and the less out there that can catch fire the better.
The Komatsu 180 PC we had we bought for $14,000 eleven years ago and sold it for $14,000 at auction last fall, I do think it was in better shape when we sold it than when we bought it. It was nice weighing 28,000# and only 9' wide so I could pull it behind a single axle dump truck but we have a detachable gooseneck for a semi and 3 road tractors - - - around here if you want a 50,000# or larger machine you can get them real cheap! Nice if you just want to use them on your own property.
