Hey guys, I am currently shopping for a new mini skid for my landscape company. We currently have a Boxer 427 but it lacks in lifting capacity for what we are doing. This weekend I had a DW SK800 (the old SK752) delivered as well as a Vermeer S925TX. I took both machines out to do some work and made a video review of the two machines. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> If you are not interested in watching a video here are some notes. Both machines are obviously great machines. I really like both and each had their positives and negatives. As far as ground speed goes the SK800 wins. It was a bit faster in forward and in reverse. Speed of loader arms and bucket tilt the SK800 wins Responsiveness of controls goes to the SK800. I could barely move the joystick and the machine would move, there was a bit of a delay with the vermeer. Access to filters for regular maintenance the DW wins Use of attachment hydraulics goes to DW. I love the foot detent pedal. Undercarriage goes to Ditch Witch. I like grease-able pressure and the open design. Engine - both had 25 horse kubota's but the DW didnt bog down much at all. I killed the Vermeer twice driving into a pile of dirt quickly. DW didnt have a platform lockout which I like better. Sometimes I like to move the machine without standing on it. Comfort goes to the Vermeer, the platform held you in place and felt secure Greaseable joints is ideal for me over the urethane bushings of the DW Quick attach to attachments worked a lot better. The ditch witch kept missing the holes (see video) Dual hydraulics - i really like the low flow to use for my backhoe attachment. Dump angle goes to Vermeer - i had to wiggle the bucket a lot on the DW to dump a bucket of dirt. The vermeer has metal sides that protect the engine, I really like this. LIFT CAPACITY - vermeer wins. I picked up 1600 LBS to 4 feet and could move it forward and back. No joke, pallet half full of pavers. The DW didnt have the weight kit so that might make a difference here. After its all said and done I love both machines. Both dealers seem great (DW Springfield IL and Vermeer Midwest). I will probably buy the machine that has the best price. Let me know what you think and if you have any specific questions!
