Pros ~ I do know for a fact they have serious power(I've witnessed), but to trailer that from job to job I would not be certain of its efficiency.

Pros/Cons ~ I have many hours of experience on a skid steer, although I will not be personally operating.

I need to stay freed up for the "Just In Case"

Nice machine.

I thought of getting a skid but instead bought a kubota tractor.

Weight and size wise there about the same. I planned on using it for snow removal but I have never found a site that was suitable to keep it parked(security). I do not want to trailer this thing in the snow while plowing.

To me the Kubota was more suited for landscaping work then the skid. I never did pick up the mowing deck as planned. The tractor steering is better on lawns then the skids. Other then that theres not to many disadvantages between them.

Thanks SECT! We will trailer it during snow events, the great thing is that our service area is in a 7 mile radius. I think(haven't had the opportunity to put it to an actual test yet)we will trailer it 3 times. NO WAY will it sit anywhere but in my friends and I VIEW...for real. Me & my shotty...lol

Here is what I was looking @ next season, since this company is literally 5 miles from my front door. I am all tapped out of $$$ to keep spending on more equipment right now. Kage Snow Plow & Pusher
