We are looking for a used skid loader to replace our old 1977 or so Case 1830 uniloader. We only have 1107 hours on ours but we need something bigger and newer. We looked at and drove a bobcat T190 yesterday and it seems nice. I don't have much experience with anything other than ours and thats not a great comparison since ours is so old. We also got some prices for a case 465? and a bobcat S185. My main concern is if a tracked machine is going to cost a lot more to maintain than w wheeled one. I've been doing some research and it seems that track parts are expensive and some people are having problems with having to replace rollers and idlers every 800-1000 hours. With our little use it should last a long time but since we are buying used it may be that we would need to do major repairs shortly after buying it and that would not be cool. Any thoughts about compact track loaders (CTL) vs skid loaders. I do like the idea of the low impact on grass with a CTL and increased traction but if its gonna cost an arm and leg then its not worth it. We are going to be using this machine for a little bit of everything, loading pallets, digging/ grading, use with a backhoe attachment , plowing snow etc. Any thoughts about CTL vs standard skid loader and loader brands in general. We are looking for a 1800lb -1900lb operating capacity machine.
