    I don’t think there is a stock model, but just a chassis. I will bet each machine is built to order, after assessing the kind of work intended.

    I would take one like the one with double buckets, clam style, on a fully swiveling head. You could make a fortune in the Rockies, doing streambed shaping and riparian work for wildlife and fish. Not just for the state and game agencies. I think your big ticket customers would be the Ted Turner type bazillionaires.

    Oh to be young again, and to have a big checkb00k!
