if you guys are doing the CNC work yourself and the pre-assembly yourself, that won't leave much time for yourselves when you start taking orders. this may be a seriously dumb question, but when you do start moving product, how stripped down will you sell this? would you consider selling it at the kit level? I really don't have a problem with your price (I feel the same way you do about the entry level costs for these machines), I just think the idea of building the machine from the ground up would be cool (my father is a retired welder/heavy duty mechanic).

We would Like to sell it in kit form for our finale product but we will have to work into this tho. Me and my father have done a number a products and we are all to familiar with the big process of building, boxing and shipping.

Hats off to your father for taking care of the wonderful heavy duty machines.

I think it's awesome that you and your father are working together on this. I am so glad to hear that you are looking seriously at the kit as an option, also. you guys are definitely on my list of things to follow.

I think there is getting to be an overabundance of back hoe excavator kits or RTR throughout the world already, but nobody is offering a front shovel like what I have I seen on your website. I'd go for one of those in a heartbeat! ...and help you however I could to piece it together to make a kit with high quality hydraulics & electrics.

I'll be following this thread for sure!

I want to second the suggestion for a crane! And while we are at it (are you guys keeping a wish list yet?) a dozer with an electric blade winch setup.

Izzy has already made a dozer with an electric blade, looks very similar to D6.

Thank you for all your comments! We are definitely making a wish list of things we want to build. In the depths of our mad scientist lab (DON'T ask about the Orange slime) where the beta BB390 is being hatched we have something new growing as well!!!!!

To address Lil Giants comment and numerous e-mails of there Being an "overabundance of back hoe excavator kits" Me and my father fully agree, except we have weak knees for Excavators.... Here at BareBones we love to build what "we" love. The LAST thing we would want to happen to BareBones is we create a product line based off of "We think people will like this, but we don't like it, but I'm pretty sure everyone else will like it". We build what we love and create things we think are cool We also love pushing boundaries of what can be done. In the end if we fall flat on our face at least we stayed true to our selves.

Among all the new asian strange looking machines, it's great to see new back hoes, with a fine and realistic design I don't agree that there are a overaboundance of USEABLE back hoes kits/RTR on the marked. 1 Swiss, 3-4 German fabricators do make equipment that works. Keep on the good work

Is there any news on the BB390 ? Haven't seen any building threads yet, so there are maybe not so many produced so far?
What pressure are the cylinders rated at?
Is it possible to see pictures of the undercarriage/superstructure 'slewing ring' arrangement?

Oh, okay. That's strange with no response at all. It seemed positive what they wrote here on the thread last summer, and their website is still there.

I emailed them bout 2 months ago and had to email them several times to get a response. once i had there phone number it also took a long time to get a call back. they are a very nice group of guys to talk to for sure. but im along same lines of everyone else when it comes to taking the jump.
