I prefer the Ditchwitch style. Demo a sk650. That is a nice machine.
But for safety reasons the ground speed on a stand/walk behind is lower. ( obviously). I think for applications with slow speeds or limited distances those machines are tops! I will say that!
I used a dingo to move fill dirt 800 yards away. It was torture!
