which backhoe to buy?

steve I have and still regularly operate a series 1 580SL and have had great luck with it.
Going to have to upgrade at some point.
Its just been a great machine with very few problems. Literally have gone through a handful of hoses over the years.
I know guys with very new 580sn's that have gone through as many hoses as I have. I have also heard of various problems that concern me.
I've considered brand new (lot of money) 2014-2015 with low hours, or 580SM series 3 with lowish hours.
Other than buy the latest you can afford, any comments.
I would not buy 2010-2013.

AJ Not many people will be selling machines that are less than 3 years old unless they coming from a self drive or rental company,I would opt for new.

steve Any comments good or bad on 580sm series 3?
