    what jobs can a mini track loader do better than a mini skid (cat 226 range) and vice versa?

    the main thing that is a benefit to the mini skid is it's smaller size.

    it's easy to transport, does not tear up the turf, can work in very tight areas, and has great visibility.

    the mini skid is a better choice for jobs where you do not need the weight capacity of the full sized machine.

    Depends on wht kind of work you will be doing! The mini's dont compact the ground as much.
