Alright I have been searching high and low for a deal on a skid. I basically just need one to use a harley rake, pick up pallets of sod and trees(4" max). From what I have read New hollands aren't so great for grading... is that right? For the Deeres, it seems alot of people hate these things... how are they for grading? They seem to be able to pick-up some weight though right? It sounds like Cats and Cases are the cats meow. What is the real world capacity of a 246? Will it pick up a wet pallet of sod? Also I don't really understand the tip capacity. If a machine can only pick up 2k, how is it going to tip at 5k?
