I am planning to more landscaping next year and am considering purchasing a skid steer or utility tractor. I have read the many threads that cover this debate and decided to post a thread with a different twist. I have used the mini-skid steers (dingo, kanga etc.) and they do a good job for me but it would be a plus to use the machine for aerating and as a back up mower. I mainly do residential work and many times have to work in the back yard without tearing everything up getting there. The main attachments I think I would use are the bucket, auger, trencher and blade. After looking at the products available I have become interested in a Steiner or Powertrac. Does any one own these machines and if so how doe they compare with a small skid steer or utility tractor? Thanks for the input!
