      If I read your post right, it's time for you to buy a hoe and start bidding jobs. Yellow iron is cheap atm if you got $. Only reason I've not bought any is that I don't want it and there are still enough guys hungry out here that they havn't made me give up and deal with finding parking spots for it.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

        The last excavator I bought was from a large chain rental company. The unit was leased to a power company for a year and only had 500 hours on it. It also came out of Florida so most of the work it saw was sand. Rental companies are a good source for larger equipment sales just beware and test operate before you buy. The same company tried to sell me a Vermeer trencher too. That POS couldn't crowd through a pencil sized root.

          Bought My Hoe at nationwide auctions Benicia Ca. Just for fun go tu their web page. Also try capital auctions Ca. I went to about 4 auctions before I bid. I sat and chatted with the buyers and that helped a lot. I finally bought an 8 tom M.F.19' extendahoe,full cab with 1700 hrs for $11,000. Very happy

                That's because Montgomery county is one of richest counties in the country. Go see Mike @ Metro Bobcat.

                  I imagine you would have a hard time finding one since the proper spelling is actually 'excavator'...

                    I used to know a few in lower Montgomery county but they are either hurt or moved away. Best you can hope for is a guy that can dig a series of connecting holes. Call around to concrete companies looking to sub out their digger.

                        That same machine leased out to a utility company for 1 year or so will cost half that.
