I had a customer today that some salesperson told them the truck they bought would get 18 mpg, it was a 6.2, crew cab, long bed, 4x4 with offroad option tires. things lucky to get 12 -15 but 18 only on a trailer. ugg sales people
If I told you what I was getting while snowplowing, you'd really feel sorry for me. Gotta get me a diesel truck someday soon!!!

To play in the dirt all day, get paid, and not have to pay for the equipment. what a dream
Well Dan, we all gotta do what we gotta do. But on that whole QA thing... I suggest you figure out what FEL attachments you'll ultimately want to have... then add up the prices and see if skid steer universal QA makes economic sense or not. It is not a simple decision if you are already into another system. But I suspect that someday you're gonna want to add a grapple, HD bucket and maybe a lot more. Make your decision based on the economics as best you can figure them out and go for the gusto!
