Has anyone used Skid Steer Solutions EZ-PTO unit on their Bobcat. This looks like an pretty good solution to use PTO driven implements on your skidsteer. I believe the 3 point tractor attachments are cheaper than the Bobcat attachments. I am thinking of using it primarily to power a PTO driven rototiller. I would also plan on using it for a 3 point hitch box blade.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you're adding more attachments to the unit than you should need. Why not just run the tiller from the hydraulics and try out the new box blade from bobcat the hydraulically raises and lowers. What's with all the need for PTO?

It just seems like tractor implements are less expensive than the Bobcat equivalent. Obviously, if you paid for a hydraulic motor on the EZ-PTO, and used the mechanical drive from the PTO to the implement; each attachment should be cheaper, ie.: no hydraulic motor for each implement. I believe a Bobcat tiller is about $4400 and a PTO driven tractor tiller is about half of that. Although, I don't know if the Bobcat tiller has more power than the PTO driven tiller.

I also liked the tractor box blades because you could get them with ripper (scarifier) teeth that could drop down if needed. I know Bobcat makes a front scarifier, but it would be nice to get both the box blade and scarifier in one attachment like the tractor implements.
Why doesn't Bobcat make a rear scarifier for machines smaller than the 963, seems like it would make more sense to have it in back, where all the weight is located.
