Sam, I don't mean to hassle the skid-steer folks, but they do cause a lot of stress on the bearings, Sprockets, chains, tires, and tracks.
The hydro-static rigs like the Mudd-Ox have a fluid-smooth turning capability. They put very little stress on all of the running gear due to little ground friction.
They hydro units should last many times longer between running gear failure. Normal maintenance should keep the Mudd-Ox on the job without much problems.
I know I'm going to have one soon and I will be putting it through some heavy loads in steep rugged terrain as well as peat bogs.
I believe you will find the Mudd-Ox tough enough to do your job.
