New Hoe


We went with a zero. Surprisingly they have come a long way, it has been a great start to the day.

Re: New Hoe


i ran a hitachi ztr about 4 yrs. ago. personally, i found it very clumsy, tippy, and a nightmare to service under the hood. a pick of 7k lbs off the side of my 210 hyundai, or 210 case no problems...was a nightmare with the ztr. and the 7k load was my trench box, 7 k off the side made it very light in the ass end. maybe if your digging was all in tight quarters, no picking...a great deal..hope it works well for you!.

Re: New Hoe


btw...the BEST money you'll spend on that machine...and don't let the CAT dealer talk you into ANYTHING else...get a JRB rotoloc quick coupler on it. and get yourself some aux. hydraulics plumbed.

As long as something comes out of the end, who cares what she does with it.
