    Eh, just for s&gs...

    I cut a tree down in the front yard, and there was this gigantic mound of a mulch bed around it. Dug out the roots of the tree and leveled everything off. Either going to sod it or maybe pour a slab for a patio. Undecided right now...

    One thing I can't believe, I didn't get a damn picture of the whole rig(truck/trailer/skidsteer).

    On another note, my measly 5.4 didn't do too bad pulling everything.

    Honestly, I don't know. My brother bought it barely used from a friend who needed some money. It did a good job chopping down the tree though:)

    Ok, I went in the garage and looked. The saw is an MS260... The tree wasn't big, about 25' tall, maybe a tad more, trunk diameter was around 8-10 inches.

    Good eye J&R! Got it right from Dano here on Lawnsite!

    Duramax - the skid truly is a bad, bad machine. I wish it were mine, but alas, it's a good friend of mine's. I've known him for so long, I really didn't even ask to borrow it, just went to his jobsite and "stole it". He bought it used with about 60 hours(demo I think) for right around 29K. So the price you're getting sounds pretty spot-on.

    As far as the 2-speed goes, I wouldn't buy a skid steer without it. My opinion is that it's a must-have and especially usefull for doing snow. I used a Bobcat 773 to do snow this winter and a 2-speed would have cut the time down by a lot.

    Yeah, it's got balls.

    My bro got it for 200 bucks. The guy was real hard up for money. It's practically new lol.
