Hi, I'm considering buying a skid-steer at some point this year and I was looking for some advice. I'll be using it for landscaping, (fine grading, distributing river rock/bark, helping out with wall building, etc.) I also will want to use it for snow clearing. Because of the snow clearing, I want a two-speed machine. It is also quite hilly here, so I want to get as stable of a machine as I can. I have NH and JD dealers quite close (8 mi), Case and Cat dealers (30 mi) and Bobcat and Gehl dealers (80 mi). Right now I am thinking of around $30000 for the machine and I'm glad to get machines that are some used, as I am not planning to put a lot of hours on (maybe 150-200 hours in a year). I'll be trying out machines when I can, but I was just looking for comments on your experience with machines, how stable they are, reliability, etc.
