I've got an opico skidster with a timber grab   , handy little machine, but rips up grass if your too hashy , plan to put a diesel engine in it at some point , not too good on ground clearance and can get bogged down  on soft stuff,  but very handy and fast on the right job , lifts to a decent height too

What sort of weight will it lift and how wide are they?

Don't run 1 but did contemplate buy a couple of years ago but landed up buying a Tobroco Giant 204 because it fitted in better with work I do.

Tobroco do a skid steer which is a Opico on steroids. 

Fancy something that can load a trailer and back of truck. Get a 12-6 ifor tipper or dropside and still have room for a load and the machine to go on. Anything bigger I'd just take the massey

You can always look at kanga or the avant skid steer this has extending boom 

The Avant is a longer machine also a bit of a knack needed to drive them as both joy stick controls do loader and drive its a bit like tapping you head and rubbing tummy.
