    Yes, I looked at these, got a price as well, delivery was too long, and it was not significantly more lift than the tractor. Hence why I started looking a bit smaller, for convenience.

    I had assumed that Jim, judging by what my mini digger was like.

    That interests me as well. Sean, there's no need to convince me of the merits of hydraulics, the kubota does a great job but is a bit of a ball ache to take to a job day in day out. If I'm honest I have I money I have to spend and am looking carefully at bottlenecks in the daily work. A second chip truck might be the smartest move, but that doesn't really send the blood racing.

    Ok right, there's some big ones on Sunset Boulevard if I remember Beverly Hills Cop rightly. Plenty of cherry pickers here to 30 meters.

    They call it a skid steer, it's 4wd, I just assumed it was an ordinary "driven" vehicle. I've never used a skidsteer so I'd never considered that aspect of it. Marc Antoine, thank you, good explanation, more to consider.

    Turning on lawns is one of its advantages I'd have thought, especially with turf tyres.

    http://www.tobroco.com/en/products/skid-steer-loaders/giant-sk-251-d/ Sooo. The search continues, having done some tests on my kubota tractor it appears that it lifts more than I imagined, at least 400kg no issue. This means that the sort of articulated wheeled loader I've been looking at it not really that much of a leap forward lifting wise, once you look at official specs, add on the weight of the attachements etc. It's much of a muchness. I'd keep the tractor whatever happens. Now I'm looking at one of these, advantages are it could fit either in the back of my truck or alongside the grinder in the trailer, so an everyday tool. Tip weight is 300kg which means what it will tip it at maximum lift, what it'll actually lift off the ground is much more. I'm going to use it with a branch manager (not a rotator as research shows they're heavy and not necessary) Tracked skids are hors la question, 'cos of ground damage. I know Squish had one that he swore by, and the pics were impressive. What say youse? Any experiences

    Nice vid A, I know you find these standard work ones a bit of a yawn but I likes 'em! I enjoyed the conversation with the client. Typical telecon..... "You cut some trees down for us a few years ago, do you remember?" "I cut down a lot of trees, throw me a bone here"

    You can use a cinching method that will compact the brush, rather than "parbuckling" the brush. Both have their places. Yes they do, in the 1970s.

    It was handy looking, I liked that you could load a butt onto a trailer then push the rest up. Show us the pic Squish!

    Me neither, the hours you put into that would be better used climbing trees and paying the finance on something usable.

    Yep good post. My wife works for a business selling houses to foreigners in France, buying a house in France must be very dangerous because an incredible amount of relatives seem to drop down dead a few days before pen gets put on paper, thus changing the buyers "priorities" Just the way it is.

    Yes that's right, it's just the way the picture looks. Whilst I am no safety nut (nothing to be proud of) I (and anyone who works for me) adhere to this simple rule.
