Years of Use : 2+ Years
Implements : None.
Purchased From : Used (30 hours)
Strengths Reliable, strong and simple. All business, easy to work in small areas, light weight enough to pull on a landscape trailer with a 1/2 ton PU. Can work endlessly.
Weaknesses BH does not swing 180 degrees, which is a problem if you want to dig wide holes and move the fill far aside (other 'Mites do swing 180). Machine is light and therefore can get pulled around by the BH easily. Gas engine is powerful enough, but just enough. Breakout and lift on the bucket is fine for most small tasks, but not for setting really heavy stones. Cramped BH operator position.
Overall Reliable, cost effective and tough machine for most BH and loading tasks. Floatation tires and quick release bucket are nice features. Idiot proof controls and operation. No bells, no whistles, just a hard working machine that you can run all day, every day and maintain economically.
