    The past three seasons I have been battling the idea of getting a skid steer. Well, demand for service has pretty much forced my hand this year! Now it can SNOW!

    Why did you select wheels over tracks? Just curious.

    Looks awesome man'! Did you get the joy stick controls? Or the foot controls, or both? I have been looking at a bobcat a200 for snow removal. I have a buddy who pays 140 per hour for skid work in the winter that is very tempting.

    Good luck with your new toy!

    I also want to know why you went with a tire machine instead of tracks? Most the people I know around my area all use tracks instead of tires.

    After all the fall clean up jobs that we have been doing lately, that sounds like a plan to me! haha

    tires are always better than tracks in the snow. the tracks float on top of the snow instead of cutting through it with wheels and getting to the traction on the pavement.
