As per title, I have a budge to of 25k to spend on a 10-15ton 360 machine. Its main purpose will be land work drainage etc, digging foundations.

What would you recommend.

Any bad machines to be avoided

Any known things to look at on viewing.

I’d have a word with Ross, he should be able to get you hooked up with something half decent.

what country is all that in, Norway or Sweden maybe ?
mostly Norway .... they've got some shopping trolley :oops: .... with some quite well maintained bargains ;)

I was trying to making him not get lost 😜
to maneuver on a Norwegian site ain't the easiest when you don't know the language 🤣😋😋
(y) aye ... know what you mean Frank, (y) but the ol' Google-ator is bloody handy on there :) .... and there's always the fall back option :rolleyes: ... talk to Frank :giggle::giggle:

We recently sold a 10000 odd hour ish Volvo ec140 from 2007 and it sold very fast for about 19k iirc. It wasn’t end of life actually felt in good order however it shows the bottom of the market for a good useable daily machine imo. You would want to put putting 1000 hours a year on her.

You should for 20-25 k get a decent enough yoke. I sadly have nothing at the moment
