Thanks everyone for all the feed back! I plan on going to look/buy it soon. Im not worried about my foundation since my foundation was made for heavy equipment. They said they would load it for me so now I will just have to figure out how I will safely unload it.

it is easier to unload than load... something about gravity... please take all the precautions you can!

Yep, also, just be aware these machines tend to be very top heavy - when lifting, they are very easy to tip over and break parts off when they fall on their side/front.

Nice looking machine, good,luck!
