10 foot or 14?

I am considering a sectional...I have one site with two machines on it...A Cat 287 track skid steer with a 10 foot box and a Cat 430EIT Backhoe with a 14 foot box...which one to replace???
I would like to replace the Backhoe box and put the 287B on another Job but which is going to be more productive with a 24 hour a day site...cars all over the place.

The nice thing about the sectional is how they follow the contours of the ground. With the wider 14' box this would be even more advantageous. Especially if your lots have a lot of drainage swales. The other thing about the sectional is how much easier they are to push. I don't think they are as good for stacking snow though.

Maybe the heavy duty ones are better then the LD's for stacking because you have to be so carefull with an LD on a backhoe. A skid they will probably be fine. Remember a 14ft arctic is actually 15ft wide.
