Its time to take the leep, I am off to the local plant hire / slaes outfit on
Firday, looking at machines. DIY takes a leep forward. Block paving the drive, for
example would take over 60000 block, no way I am moving all those by hand .........
I am pretty much decided on a 2nd user bobcat, and have set a budget.
Yep I can get a JCB for less, but a JCB is too big for my site.
Yep I can get a dumper, but I have to manually load it, even if it carries more.
I can get a tractor, which may be an option, but I can have short loans on a tractor.
A digger is cheeper to hire than buy, at 15 quid an hour including driver. The damage
can doo if you pust the bucket insted of pull is too much to deal with ......
The plan is to treat the purchase the same wasy as I would by a car, with a car you
forms of paperwork, what should I look for with a bobcat/small tractor etc ...........
A test drive is a must of cource, which will come with a driving lesson. I have
done my research on what modeal at what age are worth what money.
Hints and tips from people who have "been ther done that" would be great.
