Looks sweet!
My retirement gig(dream)is to run an mini/bobcat for small time plumbing contractors.

Nice outfit but that machine will not lift a 1000 gallon septic tank,I think you said you were wanting a machine to lift a concrete septic tank

Most of the tanks here are going to 1000 gallon plastic tanks.

The machine looks decent but digging through crushed and packed asphalt sure shined up the bucket nicely.

It’s financed. Cat are offering $0 down 0% financing for a 60 month lease. Payments are $830 Canadian a month. I did go look at a couple used ones. There was a used car 5 ton that was going to be $810 a month and a bobcat that was $800. Both were needing work so I figured for the little bit extra a month might aswell get a warranty for the whole period. So far I have 3 months worth of excavation required plumbing lined up.
