    I'm looking at purchasing one or two low-hour EIMCO 911Bs from a company that used them for utility tunnels. Overall condition is promising based on photos and phone conversations, so I'm flying out to take a closer look next weekend. My plan is to use them in rehabilitating and developing a small underground gold mine. Does anyone here have experience with these machines? Any maintenance and operation tips and tricks would be very welcome; I'm used to running skid-steers and wheel loaders but the control layout on the EIMCO machines is unusual.

    I've already picked up the engine operation, parts, and shop manuals, and the seller indicates that all manuals are included with the machines.
