Skids are only as useful as their lifting capacity. There will inevitably come a day when you will want to use it to unload pallets of sod, fertilizer, etc... and a small machine will not have the ability.

T190 is a good size loader will lift 1,900 lbs You buy one to big you wont be able get it in tight areas to work I have 1991 Tireloader 3825 Gehl its like 1/2 size of a T190
My 3825 will lift 1,000 lbs and will fit on a 5ft side walk plowsnow Its speed is faster then a T190
I say pick the size on what type work you going to be doing
I was going buy T190 last year but spent money on something else
