    I am looking at 2 different used compact wheel loaders. One is a New Holland LW50. The other is a Schaeff SK853. Anyone have experience using either one. Was wondering how they handle a 10 foot pusher and how they are for parts availability. Thanks for the help

    I rented a terex 873 (made by schaef), & was looking at buying as ininvestigated more I found it had Perkins engine, both engine & machine were imported from England, dealer support non-existent here & mechanic said if engine or brand specific parts needed it took awhile to get them
