Re: Mt 52


How many hours on that bad boy. I am considering buying one. I own a Boxer, which I bought pretty cheap on auction. Problem is it keeps breaking down. Had I known how much I would use it I would of bought a better model.
Trying to decide between used t52. 400 hours for 16K....rental machine so makes me a little nervous. Or new 21k.

It's an UNBELIEVABLE little machine. I removed a pallet with 12 80lb bags on it from my dump truck yesterday. Do the math. Just under .5 tons.

Re: Mt 52


Karl be cognizant that anything with tracks and rollers does wear out..esp sand!
I know,it's the main reason I cut up a perfectly good running 1150 case crawler loader.
I had a neighbor whom bought a mustang rubber track bobcat style machine with all the attachments. He did a long dry wall in front of his house and trucked the stones unnecessarily 1100 ft from the back of his property as his mason dumps sat idle!...I was watching the hired mexicans laying stone on a shallow footing dug in an aquifer filled with 1/2'' round gravel. Not only did they stand up stone in this rolling mess but they cut acute angles on all their stone bases and tops.....a sure sign of wannabe stone masons with no clue.

The job ended with him replacing his undercarriage and the wall bulging open and collapsing in expanding sections,... to this day!
