I am also trying to decide which way to go as well. I have demoed the Bobcat Mini Skid and looked at the ASV RC 30, and Toro Dingo The main reason I will be getting a Bobcat MT52 is because of the trencher attachment. I do mainly Irrigation / Sprinkler installs and occasionally will do some SOD, Landscaping I also subed out my grading work which is about $150- $300/month. I have rented Ditch Witch Trenchers 1020, 1230, and 1330 several times per week rental cost between $110 and $148 per day. what I paid for rental I can own a machine for a lot less per month. After several months of research finally I will be getting a new machine in about two weeks. 1 Like the fact it has a diesel engine Kubota 18hp 2 The dealer is close about 15 miles 3 The controls are easy to handle 4. The machine fits in the back of my truck ( Isuzu NQR with a fold up hydraulic ramp no PIA trailer to back up ) Some options I will be getting are 1. Ride on Plat form 2. 36" mini construction/ industrial bucket 3. Trencher 4. Stump Grinder ( We recently had four hurricanes here in Florida) My wish list 1 One Auger power head 9" , 12 , 18" , 36" auger bit 2 Pallet forks for transporting material 3. Anbo 35" Grapple Rake Grapple Rake for moving difficult materials 4. Rotadarion for preparing the ground for seeding and beds and for mixing fertilizer into the soil 5. MT52 Mini Track Loader Utility Blade Attachment for back filling trenches. I welcome any suggestions however the salesman already tried to talk me into a bigger machine such as S130 S160 and a S185 with HVAC sweet machine which I am seriously considering its about the same price as the MT52 with attachments. Thats why I come to this board to get some unbiased input from the PRO'S.
