Hey all been a while, I finally got the thumb on my u15 excavator and also got myself a new toy. Its a l125 new holland skid steer. I have been busy with it hauling and spreading topsoil and other stuff for lots of backyard projects where the big stuff can't get to. I got it with the aux hydraulics and the 36" kit so I am only 36" wide. It has really come in handy. well here are a couple pics,.

I figured it had already been asked, just had to ask for myself. I guess in a way it is funny, but it also shows how far society has slipped into the gutter too.

That mini skid works well in tight places. I have a buddy who has a bobcat like that and Ihave used that little machine numerous times due to a small gate in the back yard or through some court yard area at commercial sites for landscaping, dirt work, hauling sod, base, block/bricks. You'll love it.

The Festiva and the Geo Metro are quite possibly the ugliest cars out there!!!!!

Ya most people laugh at the name and some don't even clue in to it...

As for festivas, I am kinda a collector of them... I have one that is getting a complete customizing... 1.8l DOHC engine, 5 speed trans out of a mazda 323 gt, 6 puck solid hub clutch, bigger brakes, 15inch wheels with low pro tires, lowering springs. Right now it is torn apart and waiting for paint, it will have all shaved handles, and that kinda stuff too... should look pretty pimp.

here is a before pic of it..

landscaping-since I don't have a trailer with a big capacity, a small skid would work well, and it wouldn't take a lot of shop space.

How does the L125 compare to say a Dingo or Bobcat MT55?

A Tach on the dash? haha Talk about throwing money away. No return on your money in that car. Do an old mustang or even upgrade to a pinto.

say you run the dingo all day it will beat the crap out of you......it is pretty rough on me and i am 14...and the bobcat i am not really sure never ran one..... but i would prefer to sit down in a little skidsteer like that instead of stand up all day... ooooo and for moving dirt with a dingo the controls can be rough on your hands... well atleast the way i operate one...

well first off i am building the festiva because i don't want to be like all the other fancy fixed up cars... this is different... and mustang owners cry when I surprise them stop light to stop light or run a 14 sec quater mile.

About the skid comparing to the others..... I bought the l125 because of the sit down fact andthe plan is to use it for snow removal in the winter so I am going to be putting some plexi glass on the cab and going to revent the engine heat back into the cab. Still won't be like a true cab but I pushed snow with my quad all last year and it can't be any colder than that.

I thought about a stand up machine but price wise this one was about the same as them too and it is still rated to lift 700lbs. I did find it hard loading a medium sized dump truck though it is at the top of my reach to get the bucket up over the box side. But a little dumping trailer would be perfect for it. That is next on the list...

Hinge pin max height = 93inches (dingo under 70inches)
Should be able to load a small dump pretty easily.

That makes sense.
