I love skimming thru Yahoo Japan's snowblower section. It's their equivalent of "E-bay" in the US.

Japan is what initially brought is the Mini Excavator and they have a lot of small tracked equipment like dump trucks and such.

Its caught on in the US. We now have some pretty cool walk behind and ride behind machinery.

I would guess they have someone making snow blower options.

Rental has gotten really expensive or I would have rented more of it in the past. Our lot sits on a glacial moraines and any work is brutal rock down past about 8 inches. I rented a jack hammer one time to help finish an electrical trench to my shed. I should have rented the mini back hoe.

The guy who put our fence in had one of those Toro machines. Used an auger on it for digging the holes. I was checking it out & he said he had a few different attachments for it.

I hoped to try one as it would get in the back yard and I had (or thought I did) some digging to do and I like to work with equipment just to see.


Cost was way high so I gave up and been able to cut tree roots off from the box garden by shovel.


At one time I could (and did) rent a mini back hoe for under $100 for 4 hours. sigh.

That is the popular belief, but it was the Italians who developed the first mini excavators for use in the narrow streets and alleys of their cities that dated back to the Romans. Not surprisingly, they were copied (and improved upon) by the Japanese, who were then copied (and not always or necessarily improved upon) by the Koreans, Chinese, Russians etc. It is not widely known, but the western Po river valley in northern Italy is like the Wal-Mart of the AG/off-highway/marine hydraulics industry. In a previous life, I traveled widely in that area, usually 3 to 4 times per year.
