    New member here, from Newfoundland, Canada. I recently bought a 2004 Cat 301.8 mini excavator with a cab and a hydraulic thumb. I'd like to get a flail type cutter head for it, given my research it looks like a US Mower EX30 would be a good fit, hydraulic flow wise. These seem quite expensive to buy new (quoted at $7995 USD plus shipping). Is there any place that sells used ones? I'd also like to install a mechanical quick coupler. Any pointers on where to look for these items at a "less than new price" would be appreciated.
    Thanks
