im thinking about buying a 40-50 hp 4x4 tractor instead of a skid steer for brush hogging, pushing or blowing snow, and finishing topsoil for seed. does anyone use tractors instead of skid steers? they seem to have less wear and tear and seem cheaper to run and maintain. ive also seen them with fecon type clearing heads on the rear for clearing lots. has anyone used tractors for clearing much?
