    I do not use my skidsteer for bees...yet.

    I have a Bobcat 753.

    Love it. Been using it HARD for about 8 years now. I maintain it and have never had a failure of any sort. I wish it had a higher reach, but there is only one skid steer that has 142" to pin to stack hay in a barn and the price tag does not justify it yet.

    It is probably my most used piece of equipment.

    I have Bobcat 773g and love it. The G series lifts nearly straight up for a bit before it starts to arch and that is handy. Use it for everything and would not want a smaller model.

    I have a Bobcat S185 and a T190, prefer the track machine, when I'm off pavement.

    the best part my Boxer is it fits through a 36" gate.....lots of power in tight spot. How much does a full hive weigh?/
