We put about 350 hours a year on our mini skids. We use them all day every day. No matter what brand none of them hold up longer than a year in my opinion. Anyone thought about going up to a smaller tracked CTL like a Cat 239/249? My thoughts are this; I can have one set of attachments for both of our machines. One dealer to service everything. Much better production rates. Operator comfort/safety/etc. Yea you lose some of the getting into really tiny gated backyards but honestly we don't do much of that. The purchase price isn't too far off comparatively when you look at the new mini skids. Ctx100 DW1550 etc. Thoughts or experience?
