Any one tried a Mertz Boxer Mini Skid?

Let me know what you think about it if you have one or have tried it. It looks pretty awsome.

I demoed one last year at the Expo in Louisville. It was a really well built unit IMO.High flow hydraulics, and really serviceable. I liked it better than the Kanga, Dingo and and Bobcat MT 50,( but that is another machine in itself) I demoed as well. They all have their respective uses and applications. It is one we are still considering for this fall. The Power Trac unit is another, but different unit I am considering buying to bring some more versatility and outsourcing we currently do all in - house.

You betchem landproscapes. Just bought extra set of tracks and am ordering second set of sprockets. Build roads, trails, ponds. pull a brush cutter and purchased the backhoe (non-pivoting) that doubled the usefulness of the TD327. Widening tracks very useful for pivoting with the backhoe and a full bucket. If I go straight the grass is not damaged. Unit is a bit temperature sensitive so if cutting trail uphill in high temperatures, must watch the guage carefully. Bearings on the bucket piston were first to wear but they are connex, so pound them out and pound in new ones. TOP-OF-THE-LINE machine.

better sites for Boxer

Boxer has two sites that are much better then the one listed.

www.boxermeansbusiness.com and www.boxerequipment.com. I got both of them from a promo email they sent me. Good financing rates too. I may pick up another Boxer if the business keeps coming in. This year is definately looking better then last year. I have one of the 118 trenchers and this thing is a beast.

How long did it take to get used to the controls...? I demo'd two and didn't like the sticks. I am used to pilot controls in my skid and the vermeers controls.

I didnt take me long. I like the controls better cause you can control the tracks independly. And you can hang on the the handle bars better while operating the controls unlike the others

Did you have trouble operating the tracks and the loader arms at the same time? Say if you were moving backward and wanted to smooth something off (w/o using the float). It seemed to me like I was working against myself. Maybe your have more dexterity then me...lol...
