    I do notice small changes, it's not drama, but not normal either.

    These could be more than just a pause of the supply chain.

    Our stores have been restocked since the first time the unprepared sheeple panicked.
    Theres nothing really in short supply that weve noticed.
    Theres already been some killer deals but I missed a backhoe for 15k. Called just after some dude bought it. Dangit!

    Everyone in america should have plenty of savings since weve had the "best and strongest economy ever in history".
    Hertz car rental filed bankruptcy after 100 years in business along with many others now. I guess 100 years wasnt enough time to save for a month or two with no customers.

    Backhoe around the farm is one of the best tools hands down, but choose your model carefully.

    I have a case 580C, 1979 model built in the USA when things where over engineered, yes its old, but zero electrics, everything is easy to get to and work on, lots of parts around, both new, used and tons of aftermarket, also may parts change over to early john deere's including shuttle shift. There is a guy Barry Lane who all he does is deal with Case parts here is Aust.

    Stay away from less popular models, massey ferguson back hoes are crap, JCB have tons of specific parts and you can only get them from dealer, john deeres are great but few around in Aust.

    Key points to look for
    - 4 in 1 bucket is a must, don't bother if it hasn't got one
    - rear hoe controls to be two stick, like you would find on any new machine, if it has the crap piano style controls with the slew on the foot controls its a pain to use.
    - 4wd is overrated, and adds complexity more things to fix, its a heavy machine you don't use if after rain, if you get stuck, its got a loader, outriggers and hoe to pull you through anything.
    - Open cab is much nicer, closed cab always stinks, AC never works properly, it add extra height getting in tight spots, and you have all the extra glass that always end up breaking.
    - out rigger design/hoe mount, I much prefer center hoe mount with fold out out riggers, again less things to go wrong, tried and proven design and easy access to hydraulic hose change over, all the new designs with the side hoe and drop down out riggers are great, until you have to change a hose. Only draw back is you need operator skill to dig up beside a structure.
    - make sure its got a shuttle shift, IE, forward backward on a lever like a forklift, its god send when doing loader work, if you have to push in a clutch to go forward and backward gets tiring real quick and not as smooth as shuttle.

    Deals are plentiful, yes. I am buying technical equipment, electronics at much lower prices. Due to lower demand they have to cut prices.

    "Wave 2" is nevertheless being orchestrated, exploited, pre-announced like a promotion.

    But Corona is still REAL. I've seen countless credible evidence from doctors working on spot that it's a terrible disease, it causes tremendous suffering. And people who die literally suffocate on their own phlegm and blood.

    It is disgusting how Corona is being exploited. And will be even further exploited politically and economically.

    Perhaps many of the cases reported weren't Corona at all and it is not clear how the tests work, many of them are defective.

    But Corona still is real. If it weren't, then the whole "game" would have been debunked already.

    But most things we will never know. And there's a lot of debate regarding the severity of the disease.

    Some groups are afraid that the economies will collapse, therefore they are easing the quarantines, while other groups are literally using Corona in economic warfare and couldn't care less about the economies collapsing.

    Freedom of speech is being cut. Beside the economic issues, what is happening to freedom of speech is worrying.

    People that die are usually on ventilators and in an induced coma. Theres no suffering for them. They dont even know anything.

    Its was a John deere 310d, like the one we had before but a couple years older.
    We cant use an open cab with our winters here and 4 wheel drive and chains is a must for the snow but other than that I'd like an extendahoe and a thumb would be nice to have.
    We would use it for all the usual and for snow removal during the winter. A plow truck alone isnt big enough to get through it and we usually have to snowmobile.

    310d are a great model, forgot you guys have that white stuff called snow, my farm is in the sub tropics so don't know what that is.

    A hydraulic thumb is awesome on a backhoe but super rare in Aust in fact I dont think Ive ever seen one.
    I have one on my 5 ton digger and its super handy, at picking/sorting between moving dirt.

    Funny how requirements change so dramatically pending where you are in the world.

    This is where I respectfully disagree with you. Who was it that said small lies get easily debunked - it's best to make it a big lie so that nobody questions...

    Exactly Krakked, this is not the first time a big lie has been told to the world, and certainly wont be the last. Hitler, 9/11 - did the Americans ever find those weapons of mass destruction...

    How do you know that for sure?

    Doctors reported differently. I hear doctors describe the suffering of severe pneumonia patients (credible sources). This includes several doctors who previous believed that Corona is "exaggerated", but later they saw the suffocating patients with their own eyes.

    They die when they can no longer breath on their own and are taken off the vent. They are unconscious when it happens. It's always the same.

    The patients get the lung infections and are put on the vents. The worst cases either recover or they dont.
    Over half of us deaths have been in nursing homes.

    The people Ive known that had it went through it and that's how it's done. If you dont begin to breath on your own they pull the plug.

    JohnnyBravo, THAT IS A CRIME!

    I personally believe that even "cerebral death" and coma is still a form of LIFE. And there were many cases when people woke up from coma I don't know how many months later. And yes, there are miracles too.

    When they pull the plug on someone, it's literally KILLING that person. But of course, "electricity" is expensive to some. Also, that hospital bed is "expensive" to the heartless soul-less.

    But QE is not too expensive, nor are the lights powering Las Vegas' casinos, nor the lights lighting up Vanilla Ice's toilet, nor are gold flakes for luxury pastry and Nobu is perfectly fine for a luxury dinner...

    ...but homan life? It's worthless. It's WORTH: LESS
