    Are you are talking about the ToolCat?

    All, I'm Going to Say is Be careful of the early toolCats. That is ALL THAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT.:dizzy:

    They have many upgrades. They are very slick units. 20mph quick attachments, fit in tight places, 4wheel drive.

    I dont know what you mean by utility, they are all for utility, arent they? I've plowed with a 763, works awesome, stacks like crazy and fast as hell. Only thing I wished I'd had was a wider plow, only got a 6 footer from Bobcat, could have pushed 8 or 10' easy.

    there are several people on here that used tool cats exclusively for plowing snow. I know I would love to have one. Tool cat with blizzard 810 on the front, one bad mother of a plow rig in tight areas.

    There are a few guys up here that use toolcats, they are productive. However, if you use skid-steers in the summer, it only makes sense to have that machine produce for you in the winter. That said, i find more co. using skids than a "versa" machine.

    I used to think Bobcats were the greatest thing since sliced bread, until I used a Cat tracked skidsteer. I've yet to use the Bobcat brand with tracks, I'm sure they are just as good, but when it comes to comparing tracks to tires, forget it. It is like night and day. Tracks are ten times more stable, fast and don't tear up lawns like tires do. I work for an equipment rental company and I get to drive them all the time, and I talk to a lot of customers that use them, and they all say the same thing, nobody wants a skidsteer with tires after using a tracked one. They arent at all jerky like a regular Bobcat, that seems to always be trying to flip over backwards.
