You got to consider what you need on the machine,most midi excavators doing utility work will have a swivel boom,the swivel boom has its plus and minus,but if you don't need it don't have it,there are too many joints that wear and the boom flops about and that applies to all makes,there are hundreds of midi's doing utility and contractors work in my area,a lot of the work they do is railway arch refurbishment,break out the old floors,knock internal walls etc that were built in the old days with sand and cement,the machine that stands up best is the Hitachi EX45-2,(Kubota engine) the Komatsu PC40 would be a close second,Kubota are good enough but not poplar,the cabs were not liked,lots of trouble with the valves leaking and pin joints wear,machines here have to be tested annually,the machines I am referring to would be working machines,the Case of the same size was favored by some customers and they do ok too,they have a good dealer backup and were cheaper to buy new,the Hitachi EX45 at about 4.5 ton,big or small Hitachi build the best excavators of all.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

Boy where did you get all this information First of all the NUMBER one selling mini excavator usa wide is Kubota first followed by BobCat second. Now that blows the KUBOTA not poplar statement. Case never made a mini they BOUGHT Kubota ones and rebadged them for awhil then went to selling another rebadged machine. Dealer support on a Hatchi in us... Very Limited. Komatsu minis OK but again not a lot sold.
