    I have a Norcar 765 mini loader. Really excellent bit of kit. I hired both skid steers and mini loaders before buying to work out what suited me best. Mini loader won hands down.
    I often work on nice turf so pivoting turn doesn't tear up the ground.
    It will easily unload 1000kg pallets from the bed of a lorry.
    Far greater reach.
    Light enough I can tow it with my pickup.
    Has low ground pressure tyres that leave less marks than walking.
    The one I have does not have the high flow auxilary circuit like a lot of skid steers, but it is an option.
    The downside is outright pushing it will not touch a tracked skid steer, but I don't use it for that.
