    I tried out the Vermeer S800TX with the wider stance and much bigger loading capacity.

    Can't say that I liked it because of the size of the unit. Just seemed too big for tight spaces and not quite as nimble.

    Just sayin.......

    I ll agree with White on this one--get a big stand on unit Ditch Witch or Vermeer and you don't lose the operator's labor--so easy to get on-off compared to getting in and out of the RC/PT 30. We have an SK650 and find that it pairs beautifully with a yanmar Vio 35 for most jobs--we also have the roll off truck

    I ll put my SK 650 grading against your RC/PT 30 any day

    White--once you pair the mini with an excavator you won't worry about that backhoe
