    I have been looking at one and now I see they offer a smaller machine that would work great for us as we do a ton of residential drives and walks. It will fit down a sidewalk, 44 hp, front mount blower, etc. I think it was the wacker Neuson Wl 30. Right now I am using new holland tractors with front mount blowers - they are nice but we road trip them all over town - there slow, but yet not worth time loading and unloading on trailers. Also use two BC skids - one with blower other just bucket. Anyone know much about these units? Or have one?

    The wl30 only has a 20K trans in it... Unless you have a really small compact tractor your tractors should be doing 31km/h... A deere 3720 does anyways...

    I looked into them in the spring and setteled for a cat 906H and couldn't be happier with my decision over a WL50...

    So your suggestion would be to simply get a bigger tractor? With a bigger tractor I could handle a larger seeder, maybe a loader, etc. Already have the skids and not much work for a small wheel loader during the summer but ya know how that goes, always find something to use it on.
