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

Default Nice ride

Very nice machine, I went with a T110 which is tracked but I do not have the snow you get either up here in Edmonton, Alberta, more a light snow of 4" on top of a sheet of ice.

That bobcat will do well for you and is nice and manoverable in tight areas as well compared to some tractors.

I use mine for snow removal, horse paddock cleaning, and run an alpaca ranch so toss 1,000 pound bales with it as well. You see pretty much see skid steers and front loaders doing the commercial and industrial properties here, rarely a plow truck or tractor.
