Boxer skid steer opinions

Recommended Posts

I spent months deciding on what loader to get. Wheeled, tracked or articulated in the end I went for MultiOne 5.3. For the money, size and warranty it does beat a lot of the competition. All depends on your type of work but having a telescopic boom makes life so much easier. I am now in a slightly biased position as I am a independent sales agent for MultiOne but there a massive contender on the market with a great range of models to suit people's needs up to a 9-10 series that has a tipping load of 2.7t yet only weighs 2.1t so including attachments can be transported via 3.5t trailer. 

I too am biased, but to a lesser degree since I bought one in comparison to you trying to sell them.


Totally agree with you

If I was starting again some kind of hydraulic loader would be very, very high on my priority list.
Much less so at this stage of my career.
We are making good money with a Tranny/TW125 setup, focused on domestic with a good and happy client base.
I reckon a good 50% of jobs are down a side alley into a back garden where a wheelbarrow will barely fit.
I can't see any advantage in a machine there.
Bigger jobs we team up with blokes with bigger toys.
They're all great though, but I was shocked when I saw how big some of the machines actually are.
They are getting on for the size of some of the tractors I drove on farms back in the day!
That said-
Can even the diddy little machines lift as high as a Transit bed?
That's all I'd need.
