Evarn's mate Nick reckons when he bought his Takeuchi TB215R mini excavator, there wasn't much in the way of reviews on the machine so Evarn took it upon himself to rectify the situation.

What he found was a tough, capable digger. A real 'operator's machine'.

"I found the bucket break-out force seemed to be superior to the break-out force encountered through the arm, especially when digging through the tree roots," Evarn says.

"Once I found a happy medium, though, I was able to dig the trench at a good pace with minimal bucket stall."
