    That is sweet. How terrible is it to find parts for?

    if it's anything like my Toe Hoe, parts are probably pretty generic, like hydraulic cylinders from Tractor Supply, valves and shit like that, from Northern Tool fer sure

    I'm trying to picture the scale of the machine from the photo, only 5Ĺ ft depth, my Toe Hoe max depth is 7ft

    Re: FS 1 ton gas excavator

    If I didn't just retire, I would take a serious look, for the mobility alone, getting from here to there on site gets old, one bite at a time pulling yerself with the hoe and leaving divots on the client's nice, manicured lawn, then the extra time to rake em smooth.

    correct me if I'm wrong, this will fit in back of pickup truck approx 37" wide , 74" long

    Specs indicate it should be haulable by most 3/4 ton+ pickups out there. Weird CG though.

    Pics/vid of anyone trying to load into a half ton truck if it ever happens. Should be a good show.

    Ya I can’t imagine why I would ever try to put in the back of any truck when you can put it on any half decent trailer much faster and tow it with a car / suv / truck

    2023 Silverado max payload 2260 lbs, cutting it close, my lard ass would be about 15 lbs overweight, loaded with the bucket toward the tailgate would be good weight distribution

    That would be a pretty rare Silverado configuration for most (not talking about you as an outlier) homeowners. My new truck is something like 1680 as a midgrade double cab for example.

    Relative high CG would make for a tippy load on any pickup, not the length.

    As Sav said, so much easier to deal with a little trailer even if there was more then enough truck available.

    so you can put something else on the trailer, materials, another piece of equipment, etc.

    Reaching. Max out the truck payload the hoe and nothing is left for a trailer, let alone anything on it.

    not really, with a half ton sure, it would be tight on gvw depending what you had on trailer, I've seen plenty of landscape guys with 3/4 & 1 tons, have equipment loaded in truck and trailer

    I could easily see the excavator in the bed of a truck, and a trailer load of pvc pipe

    I don't see a high CG, I see a tiny machine, it's digging capabilities are 20% less than those of my Toe Hoe. don't let the comparatively tall ROPS fool ya

    Wasn't talking about those trucks.

    I see a lot of weight that would be above the bed rail. Doable and within limits, but still tippy. I've had plenty of loads similar that can really move the back end around.


    We could argue about details all day, but seeing this is a F/S thread I think we've fucked it up enough.

    Bottom line is still a nice little machine and at 10K seems a bargain compared to a lot of stuff out there right now.
