Ecru aldermen approve upgrade of mini-excavator

By Pontotoc Progress

ECRU – The town of Ecru is taking advantage of an opportunity to trade in a Bobcat E32 mini-excavator bought in 2010 for a new upgrade.
The excavator, which was purchased for about $35,000, could be upgraded for just under $1,300.
“If you trade now, the machine will still be under a one-year warranty,” Water and Sewer Superintendent Gable Todd said. “It’s a program they run, and basically you’re getting a brand new piece of machinery every year for $1,300.”
The motion approved to make the trade, with added instructions to check into the cost and stipulations of an extended warranty for future reference.
