how does the machine handle the 36" auger in clay, my bobcat dealer sayed it was real slow. how does the digger work out for small patios or walks?

check out the ditch witch sk650s too, unbelievable power, after i bought my first I sold my mt and bought a second, not saying the bobcat isn't a great machine, gave us no problems for over 1000 hrs but the sks can grade better, climb better, pick up more and the operator platform is lightyears ahead

I would check it out but ditch witch and toro are over an hour away from my yard, where bobcat is the next town over. Makes no sense to drive that far for parts and attachements.

i guess that's convenient, where we are located nothings close by so we're used to driving, or upsing stuff in. if you're just carrying stuff around the mt will be great, but for doing any kind of grading leveling you'll want something different. we never used our for anything other than trenching. but i'll explain it like this we had the mt for 4 years and put 1000 hours on it, we've had 2 sk650s since this summer, 1 had 300hrs and the other has 140 already, much more versatile and useful in everyday use

I'm looking at the mt 52 because dealer is located locally the rest are at least an hour away. Why wouldn't you want to use the mt for grading and leveling etc. Please enlighten me!

they are rear heavy, that and without the platform (which I'll be frank, the third wheel sucks when you trenching or have to go over things because it'll get stuck in holes, trenches whatever) most guys can't see their bucket, I could because I'm 6' but my shorter guys were always guessing if they had the bucket level or low enough. but as the the weight distribution, you'll put the bucket bucket down and there is no weight on the front to backdrag with or really to dig with, sometimes I'd scoop up some dirt or rocks to get enough weight to backdrag. But again, its a well made machine, it depends one what you're wanting to do. running a tiller, auger, trencher stuff like that no problem, moving a pile of dirt great, not so great for grading, digging and the such. just demo an sk or maybe the new vermeer or a dingo and you'll see. also remember with the bobcat, you HAVE to buy bobcat attachments, everyone else can interchange.

You can buy a plate to switch it to dingo style right?

i believe they do, I had the one to go from the ditch witch to the bobcat attachements, but that kinda sucked after a while, I just took my bobcat attachements to a weld shop and had them converted.
