the tracks will dig better for sure - usually not much digging in tree debris forwardingThx for ur opinions. I did look into articulated tractor. If I were to spend 35k just for a material handling equipment for my tree business, I might have go that way. However, I have to consider other functionalities like real digging on the farm occasionally and other functions that I thought a skid would do better since I can’t afford to own a full sized skid beside this. I might b wrong that an articulated one won’t do as well but that’s my impression so far.
I second that, my mini skid is a backup now to my Avant, guys don’t know what they are missing out on with these articulating loaders!If a guy is gonna spend around 39K, Do yourself and your clients lawn a favor, retire your plywood and alturnas, and give articulating a good look its a level above a monster mini skid.
talk to anybody that has run both - in most all cases the mini skid is sold or becomes a back up
