I have a thomas 25G mini skid steer I believe its a 02 but there is not guarentee on that. The unit has 546 hours on it. I bought it with 273 hours on it and at 275 hours I had to put a brand new motor on it. It runs and works great. 3 of the tires were new with in the last year. Very easy controls its got a joy stick for the bucket and 2 levers for the wheels one for each side has two sets of aux hyd's It comes with a bucket but I have some attachments for sale for it also I am asking $5500 for the skid but would consider trades or would be willing to work out a package deal if your interested in the attachemtns below

The set of forks in the photos are for sale for $450
The trencher its an 07 is for sale for $2000

I might be willing to meet you half way it would just depend on the terms My recomendation would be to use uship Ive shipped a couple of pieces of equipment and it all most all ways works out to be about the same as my food and fuel bill if I were to drive both ways just a thought but I would be willing to meet you some where thanks

just go to uship.com and set up an account and list the shipment. Its free its not like you just put in your zip and get a price, people bid on your shipment. its like ebay but instead of the price going up they bid it down. I would list it with a picture of the mini skid and tell them they can put it inthe back of their truck it weights about 2200 lbs with the bucket and forks. and I can load it into their truck hope this helps thanks My guess is it would be around 450 to 550 to have it shiped but thats just my guess

yeah i used to ahve the ram rod looks to be about the same with an auger attachment and forks me and one guys could plant 25 6-7 spruces in a day in rocky condition. Getting sick of workers always thinking we a rich and wanting more money so this might be a way to drop one

Ive had this machine for a little over 2 years and dont know what i did before it I can go out by my self and plant trees all day long by my self, I use to hve to bring 2 guys with y so we could lift the trees into the ball kart and then into the hole now I just use the augger and I have a hole in 5 min then use the forks to pick up the tree drive into the back 5 min and lower into the hole, I can plant a 3" tree in 15 min not counting unloading the machine and reloading it. The unloading and loading actualy take longer some times than the tree planting dose let me know if ya need any thing else thanks

do you have an auger attachment for sale also? why are you selling? these are great they do less damage to lawns then my full size skid steer

I have an augger attachment but its not for sale b/c of how fast i can plant trees :-) I started doing a lot of shore line work for ponds and because its so wet I needed a tracked unit instead of the tires I prefered the tired units because you can turn more with less damage and with the turff tires it dose less damage . if it wernt for the shore line work I wouldnt beselling this thomas but you have to go where the money is

I'll give you a call over the next couple of days. The weekend is the only time I have to get out and take a look at it, so if you've got time then, that would be great.
