    ok, i am applying for stupidest question of the week here. I did a search and did not find what i was looking for. (Granted i may have not used right word or seach or something)

    Is there a place or site that kind of defines what all of these attachments do Exactly? i.e. harly, vs box rake, and scrapers and why a 4 in 1 box looks exactly like any other box, etc.

    I am buying a skid steer next year and am doing research on all of these to decide what i want to play with next year.

    and a gee wiz for you web brainiacs, is there a compactor attachment that would fit the front of a skid steer? I saw one somewhere that would fit a dingo, but what about a skid steer?
    (For base work on pavers)

    Thanks all for your time

    If you're purchasing a bobcat skid steer you can check their website (www.bobcat.com) for information on all the attachments. I find they offer the most landscaping related attachments for skid steers of any brand on the market. Also, almost all skid steer manufactures offer compactors.

    A 4 in 1 box may look like a regular bucket but it is nothing like one. The bucket opens in the middle (the front half folds up) so the bucket can be used as a dozer blade or a grapple.
