ditch witch zahn or sk750

Seriously looking at one getting of these. Rented one numerous times, always a need and now thinking of just getting a machine. There is a tree farm i deal with that every two years they trade there machine in. They have the zahn but with tracks. Impressive machine. Looking at there used one currently. But my question is zahn or sk750? What is better and why? I have used both. Pro's to both machines - really no cons - except sk machine we skid around a bit, the zahn we can turn sharp and with tracks barely leaves a footprint. Curious what you all run, prefer, etc. Attachment for me, plow, trencher, tree fork, pallet forks, buckets, etc. I would even consider a snow blower to use machine in winter??

I didn't think the zahn had lift nor height capacity of the 750?

if you're going to use it for any length of time you're going to want the sk simply for the diesel engine.... the gas engines are rough on the ears. zahn are great for "low impact" projects where you don't want to make a mess.
