    Well i presented my research to the boss to rent a hyd breaker we will have to purchase an adaptor or have one made to fit our machine and the hammer , so all in all it will cost the same to rent each for a month . the d30 rock wheel will come with hoses and proper adaptor to pin on to my 336e all i have to do is have cat come out to set machine up and program the tool into the monitor , looks like we will rent the rock wheel soon as january comes around I will probably make a couple short videos of it working when we get it and will give an honest review of how it works on our material which is a petrified clay type rock I dont know what it is called deeper we go harder it gets is all i know and it turns blue and you can see fine lines in it every 2-3 inches like it was a sediment layer at one point in time

    me too first months rent will go towards purchase if we go that route but its not cheap , about 57k for a brand new one but they do have used availble also 38k-42k for what they currently have same deal applies for rent with option to buy hopefully i will have my phone fixxed by then so i can take a video easily , if not i will use my camera and upload it to you tube
    ps we already spent 4 grand in bucket repairs in 3 days time triing to dig the crap we are into but it makes good road material for trucks getting onto the landfill
