    Hello All,

    I come here every day seeking new knowledge regarding equipment, and am never disappointed. This site is awesome! I have some experience repairing backhoes, and some other equipment, but have been away from it for a while. I am the kind of a guy that gets great pleasure working hard, and fixing the things that break. In the future i will be purchasing a TLB and an excavator for my property (43 acres in North East PA). I am not sure which i will purchase first, but hope to purchase both within the next 4 years. These will be used pieces of equipment as i cannot afford new, nor do i need new. Glad to be a member of this great forum!!

    Welcome. Lots of guys with lots of knowledge here. You kinda snuck in at quitting time on a Friday, so, apologies for the late welcome. :)
