    I agree with roblandscape,
    Try the Cat's out. I thought Bobcat was the best until I tried one. No more foot pedals. Everything is controlled with your hands. And they're hydraulic systems are nice too. I have used a Cat 262 from a friend and will be using a Cat 257B tracked skid next week for some lawn installation work. Would you crop the John Deere if you were to buy another skid or have 2?

    I've gotta vote for the case's- they are all hand controlled as well. Try the 75 or 95xt's...

    Ah, what the heck, just buy what fits you, you can afford, & you can use! LOL

    I have the same machine with full cab enclosure and heat / AC. We use it with a 1yd bucket for doing driveways at condos. Very fast and warm inside.

    Why put that expensive plow on a machine that goes 12mph. That plow is designed to at speeds much faster than that. The absolute fastest way to move snow on a skidsteer is with a pusher box.

    what's wrong with foot pedals?

    Perhaps I'm one of the lucky ones who grew up with video games, but to me, it's much more fluid and continuous once you master the foot pedals. Perhaps you old guys just need a little more practice? :p

    In a large parking lot having the ability to windrow is important. Also the pilot controls are so nice, you have better motor skills with your hands.
