    Hey I forgot about the one like that I have out in the shed, except mine also has a bucket on the front. If the weather is nice this weekend the operator might be running it. He is scheduled to swing by here for the weekend with his parents!

    So the baby mini rolled on it's back getting unloaded off the trailer this morning. Flipped it back on it's feet let it sit for 30 minutes checked fluids good to go. I wouldn't plan on digging much more than topsoil with it in no hurry but if it's all that will fit in the space you're working it's great.

    They are really squirrely feeling. I ran it about a full 5 minutes than got back on a real hoe. There's a in ground pool in the middle of the project that you watch for the edge on the little machines 20210401_143547.jpg 20210401_141603.jpg

    Ugh just realized the fire you are cleaning up there. It gets in your everything, that smell. I was looking for a water line to shut off outside of a fire, and just looked in a window for clues. That smell got on my vest and clothes and just laughed at the washing machine. Took me a month to wear it off.

    My brother is still complaining of the ash in his hair. I thought he was gonna flip the mini ex just pushing walls down. Glad I rented that and passed up the 2 I seen for sale. But it would definitely beat a shovel.

    because it is an active site I will have to do the digs at night. I sure wish I could rent the electric but nobody has one that small to rent. Surprisingly, I did find a couple of 2 ton electrics available near Seattle.

    Down south in the deep south (In the US) we call those Mexican Backhoes. Though I might get banned or get this post deleted for saying that lmao.
