After having some mulching work done this past summer we liked the results so much we found a used one and ended up getting a pretty good deal on it. I see lots of time spent on this thing in my future.
We bought this one from the guy who did the mulching for us. This was his second machine and he made the comment to us that he'd sell it for what he owed on it. We thought about it and called him up the other day asked if he still had it and if the offer still stand. Next thing you know he's delivering it to the farm. I'd try looking on Craigslist or something like that.
We paid $60k for it used and felt like we got a good deal. I can't remember how many hours it has on it though. We also plan to purchase more attachments for the skid steer to make it more of a multifunctional tool versus just a forestry mower.
