Ive been renting a compact walk behind skid steer a lot the past year. I keep considering purchasing one as my next large purchase. I have used a toro dingo tx 525 many times times along with a toro dingo 323 several times. I also used a ditch witch zahn and a Vermeer S800 tx. Ive liked em all. I havent used a bobcat or boxer compact skid steer thoe. I dont know to much on the technical aspects thoe. Ive just dont a lot of work with the trencher, stump grinder and bucket work and some gravel work and work with a harley rake. They seem to be very practical machines with a big price tag thoe. I would probably buy one lightly used. I would most likely be expanding my services by stump grinding and trenching along with light dirt work. I dont do enough big jobs to justify buying a large skid steer but I do enough to justify the compact skid steer cause it would suite my jobs better.
