Hello, I am getting ready to purchase a new skid steer. The two choices I am down to are a New Holland LS 170 or a John Deer 250 series 2. Both seem to be very similar machines and the price is about the same. I wanted to know if anyone had any comments about the two and wich one I should lean towards. I will be using it for landscaping - retaining walls, rock hounding yards, loading materials, etc. Also, will it be necessary to get the high flow hydraulics? Any comments appreciated.
