What is the best skid steer for landscaping/snow removal. We are going to buy one this spring and i just wanted to see what everybody is using.

I have always bought used skidsteers. I bought a 1991 Case for 6k last summer and put $800 into it getting it perfect. with the work i did with it plus snow I tripled my investment. Unless you use it every single day, day in and day out, i can't see spending 80k on a skid steer. I have bought Bob-cat, CAT, John Deere in the past, but i just find the best deal i can, work them till they bleed, make money with them and then sell them. Hope this helps

i can't see spending 80k on a skid steer. neither can I bought new and it was only in high 20K low 30's new,

if you are paying 80K for a skid you dealer is laughing all the way to the bank
