We have a big skid we do our big loading with, but thanks again for the info and great work!
No problem. You'll definitely have less of a footprint with a miniskid. We switched to turf tracks, and they've been great. We do put plywood down from time to time if there are tight turns to be made to prevent any damage. But driving straight or gentle turns are no prob.
