Mt 52


So I bought an MT52 last Monday. It's being delivered tonight.
Used with 700hrs on the machine and 500hrs on a new engine. (Previous owner mowed with it and unknowingly clogged the radiator)
The only pic so far is me on a 6hr round trip to pick up a set of forks and a spare bucket. (Seller would not seperate)

Re: Mt 52


The deal was pretty sweet so I'll deal with the extra bucket later. This one will except teeth, so maybe I'll put teeth on it and use it for digging in hard stuff.

Re: Mt 52


Those little MT52's are amazing machines, your gonna love it. With those hours on it, it should last you a good long while.

I like this toothed cutting edge as opposed to bolt on teeth.

Re: Mt 52


Nice, my buddy who does underpinning has 2 of these, great little machines, if it has the little stand on the back I would personally remove it, the machine can throw you very easily.
Nice purchase.

Oh, O.K. One of my GC owns the local building supply, and he rents some equipment also, He bought a new Bobcat like the one in the video.
I always called them walk behinds, I didn't know. Thanks

Re: Mt 52


You probably know but when lifting the bucket that high make the tracks are flat on the ground, if the front is overhanging the back will lift up quick and you will go for a ride.
Will you begin looking for the other attachments for it, I think I would like a complete set, I'm a dreamer.

You can't go wrong with one of these...simply amazing!:
http://bxpanded.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=49

In short, they cut with less hp, & still give a smooth cut when needed. They back drag smoothly also. They have a bunch od std sizes, & also do custom. That was my review I linked. It took about a week to get mine in a custom size.

Re: Mt 52


I paid a little over $10k with sales tax. Could have found them for $1000-$1500 in PA and Ohio, but then it's a sight unseen machine +$750 delivery to CT. Been shopping for over a month, thats what the go for. $24K new.
