Favorite Skid Loader Brand

We own 6 Caterpillar skid loaders and are buying 9 more this upcoming snow season. Anyone out there use any others such as deere or new holland or bobcat that they like?

i rented a Bobcat T590 and Kubota SV75 I really like both machines alot. Best Line Equipment who sells bobcat is opening a store is West Chester by the winter fyi i see you are from exton. I went to eagle power and equipment in delaware for the kubota. Put about 20-25 hours on each machine when i rented it. Didnt use either machine for snow but i would recommended either for doing dirt/ grading/ tree work.

If your a landscaping company too, i pretty sure i see you trucks around all the time very impressive company

Thank you! Glad to hear the feedback. Im interested in going to that store when it opens. We get everything from Caterpillar in West chester. I think we are pretty partial to the Cat loaders. I think the Bobcats look the coolest

I think the D series machines that CAT has been coming out with are really interesting. I know they are releasing the remainder of their line really soon. I noticed in one of their brochures posted on here in another thread that they offer a high backed seated seat which would seem handy in a snow removal application, not to mention the back up cameras and work tool positioning that would return your pusher blade to the same exact height every time with the push of a button.
