    Hey guys, been looking around online for a website that sells skidsteers. I've checked TractorHouse.com, but they really only deal with AG equipment. Any suggestions for places here in the States (not Canada)? Thanks in advance.

    I personally always liked CAT. The joystick controls are easy and non fatigueing.
    Personally like the ease at getting parts as well.

    Have Bobcat and Cat, by far Bobcat is a superior machine, visibility for one is better and hydraulics work immediately unlike Cat which takes forever to warm up and work correctly....

    The ****** old one we have at work has a hard time lifting up, over my ladder rack to load me with salt. The one in the picture should be able to lift higher and further away because of the two pivot points in red, correct?

    Yes it's a vertical lift machine... But not further away.... You are actually closer with more lift height...

    You'll want to research vertical lift vs radial lift. Each has there dutys

    Pat, you don't happen to know of a link or thread comparing the two, do you? I can't seem to find anything.

    The machine in your picture could load a quad axle dump truck, much less a pick-up truck with a lumber rack..............

    Ya, that's what I figured. That's why I used it as an example. I know a lot of guys on here use the S250's, so I'm kind of leaning that way. We'll see what I can find.
