    Does anybody run one on their mini skid? What brand? Pros/cons?

    Quick Attach has come out with a line of attachments for mini skids (not on website yet but they have a catalog available). I'm interested in the model they have for smaller residential brush mowing jobs (up to 2" diameter saplings). Just like to hear about anyones experience with one on a mini skid.

    There are a few different brands available. I rent one from time to time and a friend just bought one. Brush master is one I think and i can't remember the name of the one built in Alabama that is made out of galvanised steel. If you look on U Tube the guy has a video of it. I like the way it works and I have cut up to three inch stuff.

    i really wanted one but couldn't get ahold of one quick enough so I wound up w/ a dr mower, which surprisingly has worked very well

    I priced out a Toro 525 Wide track diesel, brushwolf rough mower, multipurpose bucket last October. It was pushing 25K. For that price you could buy a Compact tractor with an enclosed cab, and not be out in all the mess with a Toro Dingo & a brushwolf. For what it costs & does I would rent one IF you can find a rental company that even has a brushwolf to rent for a Mini-skid steer.

    If it helps any, my buddy has his 525 wide track for sale with a bucket and stand plate for $ 14,500. It only has 284 hours on it.
