    Looking at the specs on The new sk752 it seems that everything is now identical to the sk850 except the engine and hp rating. Now I know the sk850 will obviously have more power to run attachments but everything else is the same more or less.
    Both have 860lb operating capacity, both are on the same frame, same ground speed, ect. The sk752 is slightly lighter due to the smaller engine but also has lower ground psi....The hydraulic system has been bumped up from the sk750 but is rated slightly less than the sk850. I don't know too much about Yanmar engines and was hoping to get feedback from any sk850 owners as to how it performs and more so...how reliable, Ease of maintenance, ect. I'd guess that the new 752 will be more than sufficient to run any attachment...
    Here's specs on both....

    whats the $ difference? i don't care for the exhaust stack on the 850 or the screen... just more to tear up to me.

    Not sure on the sk752 pricing yet...They just announced it at Gie expo a few weeks ago. Im assuming itll be right around the sk750 which is several thousand less than the sk850. I do agree, the top mounted stack is in a bad spot but its just part of the hood. It is completely separate from the actual muffler so i dont see why removing it would be too difficult....

    The sk850 does have almost 2.5 gpm increase over the sk752 on the hydro system....Tack pumps are both 15 gpm at 3625 psi. But the the 850 is 8.8 gpm and 5.1 gpm also at 3625 psi where as the the 752 is 6.5 gpm and 5.5 gpm at 3000 psi. Thats the only real difference i can see....More power to attachments. So really i guess it depends on price of yhe 752 and preferences...

    I looked at both at the GIE expo and they said the only difference between the 2 are the motor.

    Another feature I like was the singe stick for the tracks instead of the dual stick. It seemed easier to operate with the single.

    I plan on trading in my boxer in the spring for a 752

    I've actually used both the single and dual lever drive controls and although the single joystick is nice, the dual levers are really easy to use and in my opinion are easier to make more accurate movements. But overall it's just personal preference. Looks like the sk752 is going to be one hell of a machine!!

    The 850 will likely have a DPF because it's over 26 horsepower.

    Salesman told me that's why the 850 has the screen. So u can see if it needs to regen or not.
