I have been looking for a skid steer for my business, and I'm interesting in your opinions about whether it would be a good fit. Unlike most of you who are in the construction / landscaping business, I run an automotive salvage yard (junkyard). We have a smaller Hyster crane as our primary machine for loading our truck and stacking cars, but I thought a skid steer would be a useful addition. We would use it primarily for pulling engines, hauling around engines and transmissions, loading engines onto our flat truck and maybe pushing around smaller and midsize cars by lifting the front. Also, we need to do some earth moving, as we're probably going to pave a portion of the yard. Do you think a skid steer would serve us well for these tasks? Engine / trans combos generally weigh under a 1000 lbs, and when moving around midsize cars (approximately 3200lbs) we'd only lift the front. Also, I've been looking at a few models of used skids, namely Case 1845s, 60xts. Are these solid machines? Thanks.
