Honestly I would buy a DW SK650. Unless you start getting huge take downs, and I'm talking 3'+ DBH, I would stick away from a full size skid. What if you take down a 10" hard wood in the back yard of a house, are you going to take you big skid steer in to pick up the wood? Or carry it by hand? A mini skid is perfect, not too big, not too small, and you can just throw it on the back of a truck. What about getting a mini skid and a chipper? I think that is a better combo than just getting a large skid loader. I honestly take my mini to almost every job, its small, light, and it can pick up pretty good size logs. Heres a picture of it in the back of my f-250 towing a Vermeer 353.
