    Good god man.. Everything is so overdone and overpriced these days.... I am not that old only 25 but all the equipment i have run has been from the 80s or older ....something like 20k± hours on those machines and they were still working....wonder if the same will be said about todays equipment?

    They seem to hold up pretty good. The emission systems are pretty trouble-free unless its -20 or colder lol.

    Dang I didn't expect that much. I was thinking maybe low 60s. Back in the early 2000s when my dad got out of the truck and into the pa blue stone business a New Holland LS190 was ~35k. Some of the new skid steers make the 190 look like a kids toy

    My friends dad has 2 885s New Holland that go and go and go. He uses them more than his newer tracked C190

    I have a Gehl 7800 model year 2003. Supposedly the worlds biggest skid steer at the time it was built.

    Weighs over 10,000 # empty.
    Rated to pick 4000# but I've picked over 5000# with it, and lugged it off.

    Machine is indestructible. I've beat the absolute snot out of it. Had a chaffed hydraulic hose, and a busted starter bolt. That's total repairs.

    Wouldn't know how to live without it.

    That thing is a BEAST. One of my buds had one for farm/quarry. Bet it could do 6000. The 190 would do a little over 4000............with weights on the back + 2 guys standing on the back. You set it up so you drove up an incline loading the stone truck
