    Looking for a skid steer. Needs 2 speed, heated cab and be able to push 10' snow box. Lifting capacity at 2500# would be great. Never had one before so I'm not exactly sure what I need. No preference on controls.

    I want a 2 speed because it will be driven from site to site as most my lots are only half mile away from each other.

    Roughly where are you in WI? I may be able to give you the names of a few dealers I've worked with. I have a feeling used machine availability probably just tightened up sharply.......

    Not sure what your parameters are for price, brand, size, etc....., but here's a link to a dealer down here that also has locations in Appleton, Chip. Falls, & GB. Even if they have something you want and it's in Milwaukee (where most of their stuff appears to be) I'm sure they'd have no problem transfering it closer for you.

    I am in no way endorsing that you buy from these guys, just trying to give you an idea.

    Around here in Chicago there are non for sale right now with this storm. Went in to New Holland and all the used ones for sale are rented. Nothing for a couple of days.

    I'm looking for a used skid steer that is capable of picking skids of salt off of a mason dump. I will also use to load mulch. What do you have?

    if you are going to use if for snow def. get a 2-speed, you will thank me later. Check Machinerytrader.com , Pilot controls are the way to go too.
