    well im just going off of what my friend has told me and he is the general manager of sunbelt rentals for atlanta. Ive known the guy for most of my life i dont think he would steer me in the wrong direction. Basically what he said is that the tracks get torn up.

    Thts rental machines. We all know that rental machines get abused more than most private owned machines. I had a blast today running the MT52. Definitly would make a great addition to my fleet as a replacement for my mustang skidsteer.

    A rental machine is going to be rode hard and put away wet. If you trying biting off more than you can chew with any machine you are asking for issues.

    I'd vote of a mini for most of what goes on in a landscape. However if messing with sod be extra careful with full pallets of sod. In the past I've run 873s and 7753s with large pallets and the back wheels like to come up.

    Yeah no kidding. I rented a toro dingo this spring. It was now houred, but ran hot and used a quart of oil in 6 hours I put on it. They wanted to sell me the machine for 3/4 of new. I said ill pay half of new and you over haul it. They wouldn't and still have.

    My dump is a lil too tall for the MT52. I'm gunna look at some of the Vermeer and ditch witch mini skids. I believe the ditchwitch has a higher reach.

    Thanks KK for letting me hijack your thread and thanks for the info guys. Honestly after really thinking about it might still go with the big skid because in my other "division" of my company I really need a full sized skid to lift pallets. I'd rather have maybe a smaller bob (something that could lift around 1000-1500#) and a separate trencher (i'm sure I could pick one up for the price of the trencher attachment) and then go from there.
    Can't you get a older full-sized bob for cheaper than most used minis? The full-sized machines have been out longer right?

    good luck finding a mini that can reach over the side of your dump trailer.

    If I keep picking up tree work, ill prolly sell my dump and get a dual tandem dump. In a dream world I would have: Tree Work(T250 and 20' dual tandem dump) & Landscaping(mini skid and 14' low profile dump trailer). We can all dream. Well I'm off to study some more for the Louisiana Arborist exam I'm taking tuesday.
