    Looks awesome except enclosed tracks. Ditch witch tracks got me spoiled.

    What a Bobcat killer, even the same loader design as the full size.

    I’ve never seen one of these in person but Kubota seems to be dominating the full size skid steer market in my area. One complaint that might be a non existent concern is the hoses look like they’d be in a good spot to burn your arms.

    Those hoses are covered in a nylon wrap and you shouldn’t be that close to them anyways.

    I wish it didn’t have the onboard screen. Keypad to start is a pain in the ass when wearing gloves and it better have a QuickStart feature because I shut off my skid and restart it pretty often.
