    I don't have much use for a loader so I bought a skidder instead.......... What do you guys think?

    Box doesn't look all that big, but I certainly like that grapple for moving cars outa the way!

    I found this picture on Facebook today and I figured I'd share it on hear and see what people had for reactions. I bet it doesn't work to bad but, it's got to be wicked rough riding with the big tires on the hot top. I'm guessing it would probably stack about as high as a plow on a pickup.

    Not sure how much plow the operator can see. Looks like it will push real good.

    I bet that thing will stack a lot better than any pickup

    I doubt it would stack very high but, you could climb right up any pile or just push the whole pile right out of the way.

    It will push extremely well and I'm betting it actually rides very nice. Just needs a wing plow or bigger pusher.

    I've never actually ran a skidder but, I've rode in them a few times and going down a gravel road was wicked bouncy. But, the skidder I was in had ring chains on the front and double diamond chains on the rear so, I'm sure they didn't help the ride. I'm surprised somebody in Northern Maine never rigged up a plow and wing on a skidder to open up logging roads in the middle of the Winter.

    And I bet the tires were loaded too.

    A friend of mine uses his skidder with a pusher in a mall lot. It pushes snow well. He has a video on his website www.warihay.com. Click on the land clearing video.

    I could be mistaken, but I really doubt there is any "hot top" in Maine right now. Or the majority of the northern states. I know, it's a regional thing. But it isn't like asphalt is ever laid cold, other than in pothole repairs.

    I would think depending on the width of the tyres, it would do well to flat out not working well at all.
