Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've got a question about small tractors/skid loaders. A little background. I own a sign business (1 man operation). A few years ago I purchased this used Maximan track loader. I bought a hydrostatic auger for it to install sign posts. I built a back hoe attachment to do some landscaping around the house, etc. Unfortunately this unit isn't in production anymore and parts are getting hard to find. I put some hours on it last season and it's getting a little tired. My daughter is getting married in 3 weeks, so, I am looking for a ''cost effective'' replacement. I would like to stay about the size of the Maximan, so I don't have to upgrade the size of our trailer. I'm open to a track loader, skid loader, compact tractor whatever would provide the most bang for the buck. Used but not wore out. I'd like to stay in the 2g to 4g price range. I just don't want to rush out and buy a replacement, only to find I could have bought a better unit at a better price if I'd just asked more question before the purchase. Looking for something with a bucket, aux. hydraulic for attachments and compact. Any ideas where I should be looking. Haven't seen to much on EBAY under (Compact loader or mini track loader). I'll be using it to drill post holes, loading & unloading material 500-600 lb. capacity would do, more would be o.K. In need of some repair would be o.K. also as long as the parts are still available. Also if anybody would like to buy the Maximan for parts, it has a good briggs engine, good hydraulics, Output shaft on the left hand hydrostatic drive is broken. Maybe someone out there would like an extra machine for parts to keep theirs running? Sorry about the looooong first post.
