We are looking at getting a new mini skid. The two top contenders are the vermeer and the ditchwich. I am not a fan of ramrod, but one thing has me really considering it, and thats the lift capacity. It has a lift capacity of 1150 pounds to full height, and can carry around 2300 pounds. Most other mini skids are about 600-800 pounds lifting capacity and maybe 1k-1200 tip capacity. Can anyone fill me in on how this is so? Looking at them in person I don't know why they would have such a strong lift capacity beings they are all basically the same size. Is it just a combination of ramrod padding their numbers and others being very conservative? Thanks!
