So you don't sink a 10k pound skid steer?tgeb said:I have 2 New Holland skid loaders, one wheeled a LX665 and C-175 tracked loader both have been good machines. I know a few guys that own ASV loaders, the ASV is a light machine by design, it is for trekking through very soft areas. It is very good at going places other machines will not, but there are trade off's. The ASV loaders are not nearly as "tough" as the Bobcats, New Holland, and others. The lifting capability is less with the ASV, they don't have the reach or dump height of the others. But they do ride as smooth as can be. I've considered buying a used ASV just for those projects that could benefit from the lighter machine.
