I’m sure uyour right. But like Terry was saying the possible attachments is insane. Every job I see needing to do right now could be done by a skid steer. Maybe what makes it so much better for me is that it can operate in a much smaller space.
You gotta know what you need. I'll add we have both at work. The skidsteer being a little older than the tractor. At this point the SS has a little over 700 hrs on it and the tractor was just short of 2600 end of June. And no, we don't use the tractor for mowing. The majority of the hours on the SS is snow removal (it has a cab) and use as a forklift.
One cool thing is every year in the fall we rent one of these to clear our environmental areas.
