    The Ramrods are terrible. Don't even tink about buying one of them. I made the mistake of buying 2 of them. All kinds of breakdowns and the company is a joke.

    For those of you that own mini skid steers: Do you use it mainly for your own projects? Do you sub out to other contractors for work such as post holes, trenches, grading etc.?

    I demoed many machines. Narrowed down to toro and SK500. Felt better about the service dept on the SK. Now have about 500+ hrs. This machine was purchased mainly to install sprinklers but I am amazed at how many thing we use it on. Not a fast dirt mover and not good for larger jobs but does have a place. We don't sub out any work with it except an occasional small trenching job.
