    go to the tractor forum...there is a huge discussion on mini skids that should answer any and all questions you might have.

    In my opinion there are better choices. I used the bob-cat yesterday to move about 15 yards of dirt. Got the job done so I cant talk bad about the machine, but I can say it was under powered and had me wanting more on more than one occasion. Like previosly said, look for that mini skid thread.

    id have to agree seeming i was there using it too. I can say one thing, it will take down a wooden fence no problem. :laugh: . Underpowered, but easy to use compared to our other option of renting the machine from HD. It did leave more to be desired on many occasions. I also spread about 8 yards (about) of dirt across the front yard, that it did very well it was very easy to maneuver and didn't leave any marks in the dirt. If I was to buy, i woud look at other machines first....

    We Have A Dingo And Use It Everyday. The Thing About The Bcat Mskid Is If I'm Not Mistaken Is It Only Takes Bcat Attachments That Could Get Old.

    Yeah I believe so.The money for that adapter could go toward another attachment.Im more worried about performance
