    Just picked up a Thomas 225 skid steer to add to my collection. I really like Bobcat's (I have a S300 & 220) but I have a friend that made an attractive deal on his 80 hour 2003 Thomas 225 with a trailer so I went for it.

    It is hand only controls with the 80 hp. Kubota. Seems to be ok, but just not as "refined" as a Bobcat........ I guess I'm spoiled.

    Can anyone tell me if there is anything I should look for as its maintained or have you seen any problems with Thomas brand skid steers in general?

    Any insight would be appreciated.....
