Hey I am new to this site and am looking for some experienced opinions. If you could only own one machine would it be a skid steer or a utility tractor? My company has a small dilemma, I sold our Kubota tractor because it was a little bit too small and had full intentions of buying a newer one now I am unsure what to buy. We already have a field mower, York rake clamp on pallet forks and a backhoe for a tractor. We have rented some skid steers and really like them. they do grading and dirt work better than a tractor but also make such a mess marking driveways and existing turf. We are looking to get into more snow work, adv skid steer. Patios and walkways adv skid steer for handling pallets etc but not sure about the excavation part of it. I find the tractor to be nice for renovation work, plantings etc.. on or near existing turf we can carry the tree, dig the hole and no damage whatsoever. The tractor would be a Kubota or Deere. The skid steer would be a Cat, Deere or Bobcat. We can only have one which would you guys do? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
