Definitely isolator. That's what motorhomes, ambulances, and etc use all the time. You can then install a disconnect switch that ties the batteries together in case of emergency.

Rounded corners don't get dinged up as bad as a sharp corner. Common sense. .. Dave don't like them because they are harder to do, and the trim is more difficult. (Almost done doing my brothers trim.. finally)
Been a couple days since I took out my frustrations on Dave... feel better now.

Buy a Volvo he (me) says, they make good hoes, he says....urrrrr
I've fixed a few hydro cylinders over the years, but never had one like this.
For starters, I had to use a 3' pipe wrench with a 4' cheater just to get the top cap loose, while it was still mounted on the hoe. This is a mini hoe.... little bitty cylinders...

Most rams have a nut that holds the piston on to the shaft.. nope, not this one.. the whole piston screws on, then staked in place. I had to drill 4 holes on the face to except a D60 spindle socket after breaking my air chisel, and my patience. Then it took a torch (loctited), a 3/4 breaker, and a jack handle to break this @#&#@&$$#@$__ loose.
Man I'm wore out. Rant over.

I probably misunderstood.

That L45 looks like it has good hydraulic flow for one that size.

Can't believe those things are 45k new.
Seems like you came out alright on the price. Now get it dirty!

Dang, was half tempted to offer you a fair deal on my NH... give me a reason to upgrade since I went to all the trouble of putting a backhoe on it, that I no longer need. : shakingmyhead.

That sure is a sweet looking trailer.

That's an awful lot of work to go through to build a beautiful Bird house, then plug all the holes so they can't get in.

Mine was 29k total, with quick attach (plain) bucket, rear blade, and box scraper, and a 1000.00 Fiberglass roof.
Shuttle shift ..NH didn't have a hydro after 45hp, and I didn't want hydro.
Just for giggles I'll give them a call, if you want.

Holy cow, I paid 25k for a 50hp new.

You might want to consider that JD, NH, and Case charge 0% financing on new compacts, for the life of the loan. Not sure about kabota and the others.

That's how I ended up with an 8k mini to fit in a 14k dump trailer. That gives me a 2k buffer.

I almost bid on one of these a few years back on a government auction, but then they went well past $10k. lol. Can't help myself sometimes.
They originally came with a hydraulic chainsaw and some other attachments that plug into connections on the sides, and store in boxes when not in use. Pretty cool if you ask me. I bet Nate used one before.

Backhoes suck in steep terrain , just sayin'...and they're stupid heavy.

I would recommend tracks if the soil in that area is soft, or sandy. I buried the skidsteer trying to clean up my sandy yard on 3 occasions. My truck had issues trying to pull it out by myself, because the hydro driven tires don't freewheel..
..but...needless to say, I don't have near as much experience as Norm, or Don...just throwing out a different view point.
I also do a bunch of roading in the tractor (16mph) going to my brother's, neighbor's, and my buddies ranch. Can't see where you would need to do that on your property tho. (I dislike loading on a trailer and chaining down)

If money is a consideration, the attachments for a class 1 3-point are mucho cheaper than for a skid steer, but a skid steer has mucho more hydro power than a compact.

I guess I'm the weird one then. I got rid of a wheeled skid steer to get a 50hp compact and only miss it on occasion.
I don't miss trying to find my kidneys after running it a couple hours.

Not in AZ. I used to think of my state as the last bastion of liberty, the place that used to be called the wild west. Slowly slipping into a leftest retreat, all because of 2 large cities, with 2 large liberal universities, pumping out little marxist demoncrats daily. Rant over
