CTL or skid-steer loader?

I work in construction and I run my own farm. At work we've had problems with the skid-steers for the past few years. I don't know if it was the motor switch due to the emissions regulations or something else, but it seems like they're less reliable now. Then again, the skid-steer loader still has a solid reputation for being able to handle just about anything, so maybe the work issue is just a coincidence. I'm looking to buy either a CTL or a skid-steer loader for my farm, but it's tough to decide between the two. I don't care about an easy, comfortable ride, but the idea that the CTL might do less damage to the land is appealing to me. Which one do you think is best suited for farm work?

If you don't care about the comfort, stay with a skid steer. They're proven. And ground damage can be mitigated by the way you drive it.

That's how I view it at least.
