Kevin and Alecia Waters of Waters Equipment, Atlanta, Ga., were taking a look at a variety of equipment, including this IHI mini-excavator. New Brunswick, Canada, is a long way to come for equipment, but Jack Surette, Eagle Tractor, told us that the exchange rate is still favorable, so he may be taking some equipment home.
