For A LOT more info on the subject in this thread,

My understanding from this thread is that the ramrod is not really that good.

As far as mini-skids go. I think the Dingo, Vermeer, Ditch Witch and Boxer would be the only ones I would consider. Also, I would not consider a model that is not tracked... well unless it is dingo wheeled unit for $3500.

Why not buy used? I have seen a Dingo 425 w/100 hours go for 11k on ebay.
I demoed several units at the expo last year. Vermeer, ditch witch, and boxer units were nice. I didn't get a chance to run a dingo. I know a couple other landscapers around me who use the Bobcat MT55 units and rave about them.
