    I'd buy one cheap and sell it for the same price. You wont loose money.

    They rent here in central ohio $900 a month for a skid steer pusher. Not worth it! You can buy one for $2000

    I didn't realize anyone rented pushers. Since they come back bent, broke or with a worn out edge, all of my dealers will rent you the machine and sell you the pusher.

    Ya last year we picked up three 10 foot scoop doggs for $1900 each, a few years ago I picked up a low pro 10 foot pro tech for $1400, and this year I bought another 10 scoop dogg for $1900. And yes they where all brand new and from loacal dealers. My 14 foot scoop dogg backhoe pusher cost just under $3000. HD Equipment for the scoop doggs and Kaufenberger (or something like that) for the pro tech. Last year we priced out pro techs and scoop doggs. For the money we spent last year we got 5 scoop doggs, if we would of gone with pro tech we would have got 3.
