    Somebody just did a thread on this the other day... "Locust Skid Steer".

    I would try one, but I personally don't think the benefits would be that great for most situations. I think the visibility looks bad and the boom looks slow. Unless you were strictly loading trucks, I don't see how the advantage would outweigh the disadvantages. Even then if you just loaded trucks, I would choose a big enough skid or payloader to handle the job instead.

    Operator skill and a 4-in-1 bucket would beat that crazy setup any day. Did you notice how tiny the bucket in the video is compared to the rest of the machine? It probably takes a month to load a big trailer dump like that.
