    Yanmar wheeled mini-excavator?

    I've been looking at getting rid of the backhoe I've been borrowing and finding for a mini-ex for around the house. The only thing I really need it for in the immediate future is cleaning out some ditches, and digging a footer for my shop build next spring. I saw this thing pop up and it caught my eye:

    I've already got a small and big loader so I have no need for a backhoe and this thing looks small and cheap enough to fit my needs. Not sure if that price is a little high for such an obscure piece of equipment. Not having an undercarriage to worry about is kind of appealing to me because I don't really need to run it on any surfaces that would require tracks. It would be nice if it would lift high enough to load into my dump truck (~100" off the ground) but I doubt it.

    Thoughts?

      Ima get to it before you do!

      It looks cool though, i very it gets stuck, a lot, unless it's on a good hard surface. Looks like the wheels are almost directly from a condor or similar aerial boom lift. This things can't go through anything sand or where it will sink, even 2" of soft will stop it.

        I seen one like that on either marketplace or craigslist a while back, it was much newer but same basic thing. I was equally intrigued.

          Would the fixed arm on it limit movement pretty bad? Seems like it would need to hinge in the bend of the arm to be useful.

            Don’t know what your seeing but it bends just like a excavator does. The picture is deceiving as it’s full straightened out.

              Not a yanmar but this is the one I had seen and was thinking of, same basic idea but better/more pictures.

ID:	54076 Hard surface only but maybe install a set of those track systems in place of the wheels.

                or, build your own undercarriage track system.

                  I've played with ~20t wheeled machines a bit. They suck very unstable (until you put the outriggers down, which the one you linked doesn't have) and lots of ground pressure. Opposite of a tracked machine.

                  For half that, I might think about it. $9k seems like a lot for that thing.

                  As mentioned it will get stuck everywhere, you'll be constantly dragging yourself out with the bucket.

                    If i described it as an arm. It hinges at the wrist and shoulder but not at the elbow. It is a fixed bend. Would not be a problem pulling anything towards you? I was thinking the excavators i have seen hinge there also.
                    I dont operate one so im asking more than anything.

                              I think for its intended purpose it would be a fine tool to have around the house. Offer them 5K and be willing to go to 6K
