    hello,<p>From the other discussion, I was thinking about good machines for sidewalks. I thought about skidsteers, but then remembered a experience I had.<p>We rented a case 85xt with a sweepster this spring, and on concrete, it left a load of tire tracks. Now, I'm not saying some could of been prevented (my skid steer days are few between) but no matter what, it seems like you leave a few. After I left the marks, the my supervisor was concerned about the 'look' of them on are concrete surfaces. I told him they would go away, which they did, but it took almost a good month.<p>I was wondering if any of you who use skidsteers have had a problem with people complaining. Even though they disappear over time, its deffinitely enough to ruffle some super's feathers for a while.<p>steveair

    With the snow on the ground it isn't an issue. The snow gets in between the tires enough to prevent laying strips.<p>Geoff
