    I've only seen one skid steer mower in operation and it just didn't look natural. I guess it's what you're used to.

    Equipment evolution has indeed given us some new tools and different ways to use old tools. I see big horsepower 4WD tractors doing the work that used to be the domain of crawler/dozers scraping dirt. Skidsteers with backhoes. Tractor front loaders with skid steer quick attach buckets. By 1960, most thought under 30 horsepower tractors were a dying breed. It used to be rare to see a tractor with a front loader.

    One man cobbles a solution to his problem in his backyard, soon a whole new industry is formed.

    We live in North Carolina. The County we live in has around 23,000 inhabitants. The largest majority of the local contractors have Dozers, Excavators, and Tractors. I know of only one Skid Steer used by anyone in the entire County. More people have Fork Trucks than Skid Steers.

    This is a skid steer 7' brush hog, and a smooth ride on independent suspension.

    Notice the pivot hinge at the top of the SSQA plate, the front wheel carries the other half of the weight.

    Stuckmotor your'e right, it just don't look natural, but it sure works good out front!

    I don't remember a pivot wheel on the one I saw. The wheel should solve most of the problems that I anticipated.

    Does the cab on that Bobcat have air filtration? The dust is bad enough when the mower is behind me and I circle back around into it.
