              I have no where to put it, no where to use it, but one of these is pretty high on my list of needs

                Volvo EC160CL that appears well used with ~30k hours...anybody care to let me know why that would be a terrible deal for $8K? looking for something in the homeowner size, this appears larger than a mini, but i already forgot how you guys said you "read" the weights of excavators by model number.

                not buying right now, just trying to get an idea of markets

                      well, large homeowner

                      i'll need more than a mini would care to do just trying to get an idea on price of things and such vs getting a rental a few months a year.

                      there was another thread somewhere in the ether, but i can't remember anymore what the "ideal minimum useful" size was and how to approximate that based on model number

                      37k doesn't sound overly heavy. hell, that could even be pulled by a MDT reasonably.

                        That’s got Action Fabs name all over it. He’ll run it by the father in law first thing in the morning.

                          No.

                          The listed shipping weight is 37,930. Placed on a double-drop trailer (14,000 lbs), the towed weight is now 51,930 lbs. Add in the class 8 truck to pull it, and you're at about 70k.

                          If you tried pulling with an MDT, you are limited to class 6. If you go class 7, that's technically HDT CDL territory. An F750 has a maximum tow capacity of 37,000... so once you add a trailer, you're overweight. You *could* order a Kenworth T470 with a 68,000 GCWR and that would get you in the ballpark, but this is pretty solidly Class 8 territory.

                            I had a 331 for a while then stepped up to a bobcat E50 for a few years. It's plenty big enough to do just about thing a "homeowner" would want to do. Unless your wanting to dig massive amounts of dirt rather quickly. It will still dig the dirt just not as fast as something like that Volvo. It doesnt pack ground as good because its not as heavy. That only matters if your trying to build road beds or building pads really.

                            Its small enough you could move it with a 1 ton truck and still get in and around things your trying not to destroy. Just make sure to get a hydro thumb for picking up trees or random truck parts. Neither of mine had a 4-6 way blade, but I have rented one with it. Would be a must have if i ever have another.

                            the 331 would barely pick up the front of v8 grand Cherokee before picking itself up. The E50 would with ease as long as you didnt try to do it 15 ft away. The 331 weighted maybe 8000lbs and the E50 was 12-13k maybe.

                              Well I did see a 34,000 lb telescopic boom forklift being towed down the street the other day on a gooseneck behind a SRW truck, but didn't get any pictures for the Big Dumb Load thread. So clearly you should ignore the advice above and go buy it!

                              Usually one or 2 of the numbers in the model number are roughly the metric ton weight of the machine but which ones they are move around between manufactures, but a quick gogle search almost always will give you a #.
