Hello, I have been getting great information from this site for a long time, but now I really need some input. I am looking into buying a CAT 247B with a bradco back hoe attachment for doing egress window installation and general landscaping. I have used several mini ex's this past year and love them, however I travel quite a bit and can only trailer one unit. I have not logged much time on a skid back hoe. I feel the skid unit would be a better package, but really am not sure. Because of the egress windows, space is a concern. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
