I've desided that in the spring I'm going to purchase a skidloader. For those of you that have experience with these what would you consider the optimal size (lift capacity, HP, ect.). I plan on using the skid loader mainly for moving material and light excuvation work. I do want to be able to run different attachments off of this machine also (bushhog, harley rake). When I do purchae one I'm planning on buying a used one probally around 12K. Thank you for your time!
