I cannot comment on the 8025 , But we did have a 8015 on demo a couple of years ago , the plan was to get as many different operators to use it within the week we had it , The first gang rang me within an hour and demanded their Takeuchi 016 back, A simular thing happened with the other operators , They complained it felt unbalanced and weak . I must admit Im no operator but I noticed it rocked about abit when I loaded it back onto the trailer .
The sales guy at JCB seemed to have the hump when I took it back after two days of a weeks demo.

Im not against JCB machines , I cut my teeth on 3CX , But their mini range has been left behind a tad .

Hi all,
i will definitely choose a Zero tail swing, because I will work in tiny streets and I don't need to go deep that much.
I am about 6' tall so I will go to a Kubota dealer to check also the comfort of the cabin, and the quality of materials.
so for Takeuchi, I would like to see the TB23R model, that is Zero tail swing, even if I know many people working with the TB 125.

Cat is selling a very interesting model but just in japan and in russia...
