I was looking for a small skid steer for digging patios, moving topsoil and snow, and other basic landscaping work. I have been looking at the PT-30 because of its 2.6lb/sq inch ground pressure which wouldn't tear up the residential job sites that we do most of the work on. It seems small enough to fit on my 16ft 10000lb utility trailer that I already own as well. They even make a turf tracks for the machine that are smooth. They claim that they are very gentle on finished surfaces. Seems as though I could even use it for large mulching jobs without tearing turf. Am a little concerned that the closest dealer is a 150 miles out from me, but I don't know of any other machine that seems to fit for our purposes. I have test driven it at the dealer but not outside of the dealers lot. Does anyone have experience with this particular model?
