    The only advantages you have is better control of the blade, it uses a constant flow from the skid steer, versus the intermittent flow from the attachment control packages and you can see better, other than that, it sucks donkey ass.

    Really? I've never seen one before. I still rather use a regular motor grader. Probably cost less than the attachment and skid steer.

    I have spent alot of time looking at all sorts of precision graders........the bobcat set up may be ok for some, but the deeper you go - you will probably want to end up with something like this: www.lasergrader.com Been looking at picking up a used one that is in California......

    Your not going to get a accurate grade with that because it is too short.

    You could buy a used Champion 740 with screaming detroit power for less than that attachment :laugh:
