I have been a lurker for a long time. I have a 2015 3033r and have been pretty satisfied. I would like a little more lift when moving gravel. Can fill bucket but would ideally like easier operation. I have 40 acres, hilly with lots of down trees to deal with. Also do snow removal and general road work. Considering going to 3046r, adding a backhoe, top n tilt and 3rd scv for grapple. 0% 84 months makes payment difference about $100. Do not really want to go to 4044, adds about 5k and I think i would like the nimble 3046r. i think I can make the backhoe work for about 85% of what a small excavator would used for. Probably rent a medium Excavator once a year.
Is there a noticeable power difference?
Backhoe worth it?
Happy with 3046r?
Am i crazy to make this move?
Thanks for all the help, would appreciate any input, including ridicule.
