    Hi everyone, well I need some help I think this is the year. I have been looking at Cat skid steers question is what size? It will be used mostly for snow removal maybe some dirt work down the road. I want to get a cheap machine that can make a lot of money no I wish. I have been looking and the dealer said a 242 I am not sure if I should go smaller to save cash or not. Any input would be great.

    Thanks, Nextdaysigns

    If useing for snow removal get a machine with two speed. You will be more productive and very handy in snow with extra speed. I have a 262 Cat and the two speed is awesome.
