    We have Bobcat brands skid steers and we are looking into a 297c Cat tracked unit. The question is that like a S250 or S300 like we have are a 2500 lb and a 3000 lb machine respectifully. This is what the specs say on the Cat unit:

    Rated Operating Capacities: 50% Tipping Load 4200 lb
    Rated Operating Capacities: 35% Tipping Load 3005 lb

    Does this mean it is a 4200 lb skid steer??? or what???

    Thanks!

    I am of course referring to lifting capacity of materials.

    Thanks for your input!
