Kenneth, I'm not going to speak about that particular model as I don't have any experience with it, but we did have several Takeuchi's over the years, and friend who has a contracting business doing utility work has had many, all performed just fine. No more upkeep than any other make. Routine maintenance and a few 'operator errors' to be fixed was all.

Best of luck.

Candoarms, I found the specs on the 125 but appreciate your input. I know the local dealership to some degree. The thing I find most interesting is Kobelo (think that is proper spelling) is what they have on local lot and they are also a New Hollard dealership. The dealership in North Charleston, Florence and Conway is the same people. I am about 15 miles from the Conway location. kt

Kenneth, if you can get that Takeuchi for a decent price I wouldn't worry much about a dealer nearby or not. Most of these machines are just a bunch of over-the-counter components bolted into a group of weldments.

As long as you can get your hands on a manual, the parts will be readily available locally. The engine, hydraulic systems and such will all be bought from major manufacturers such as Yanmar or Mitsubishi, etc.

Hope this helps.


Best of luck.

Kenny, if you're thinking of using that for your ditch mower you might want to rethink it--in my opinion. A properly made cutter can weigh 2,000-3,000 lb. That's a lot of weight hanging off the end of the boom, and it could be very tippy---if it will pick it up at all. Even a 10,000 lb machine might tip. And that's especially bad if you're driving on the shoulder already at an angle.

Also, it sounds like you're going to be "driving" this around a lot?? These machines are not designed and built to driven like a backhoe, so expect rapid wear if you will be mainly on pavement.

And if you're looking to use this for the pond and stumps you might be disappointed when it comes to not so much digging but loading them in a trailer.

I still think at a minimum a 10,000 lb. machine is what you need (actually they're rated just a few pounds under 10K so they are "legal" without needing a heavier-rated trailer). And remember too that if you install a thumb the weight of the thumb has to be deducted from the lifting rating too with the bucket.

One last thought---whatever you buy be sure it has a backfill blade. They are not only good for stability like a downrigger but good for grading/backfilling like a minidozer. (I've used the much larger Kobelco excavators with a 6-way blade and they are truly like a dozer) And when the blade is fully up you can grasp larger loads between it and the bucket such stumps and brush and transport them long distances versus using just a thumb. The blade can also be used to level the machine on an embankment too.
