Which skid steer tracked loader?

Looking to buy one for landscaping and yard work. Looking at Cat & Case. 3.5 tonne or there abouts. Open to Bobcat but really unsure which one to buy. Your help would be appreciated.

What do you plan on using if for and what's your budget?

I use mine for a wide range of work, but in general bigger/more power/heavier is better. I'm currently running a Kubota SVL90-2. Before that was a Mustang MTL325 (Takeuchi TL250).

Budget Ä40,000.00 = $51,500.00 US Dollars. Currently we are using kubota L42 with loader, it is fine but I need to get through sites faster. Main reason is we gained a high number of large scale contracts. I want to run a laser level Harley rake and stone picker.

Takeuchi is bulletproof. That kubota is a very nice machine, but it's still new to the market so we don't really know how well they will hold up in the long haul.
