It is a Takeuchi Tb 15. It weighs about 3000lbs and digs to 7'. You would be surprised at how much you can do with it if your patient. It has a 3cyl 16 hp Yanmar engine that runs like a swiss watch.

It is a 8" chipper. They have a website you can check it out. This one has a mechanical feed that works good or you can get a hyd. feed.

 Been there and done that with the track a few times. Put a thumb on there and you will think you have a whole new machine.

I do have a fixed thumb I welded on there. A hydraulic one would be great though.
