I am trying to decide whether to buy a skidsteer. I am in dire need of a forklif to unload 2000lb pallets off flatbed trucks. I hate to buy a peice of equipment that has only one real use. I can find other uses for a skidsteer if I had one. I have found a 1999 LX985 New holland that will more than lift the loads I have, 2900lb lift capacity. The guy is asking $10,500. It has 2900 hrs on it but is supposed to be in tiptop shape. I havent seen it yet. The pic's look like original paint and it isnt beat up, new tires and comes with a GP bucket. Hydrostactic drive. Need opinions on the price since I havent actually priced other skidsteers to see if the guy is in the ballpark. Thanks.
