I bought my skid before there was a 2 speed option and I wish I could upgrade it to that now. Production is the name of the game when you're trying to be competitive and a 2 speed will out perform a single speed even if it's only used during transport. My buddy has a 2 speed that I've used and it's a real nice feature. You can even save fuel as you can run less engine rpm to achieve the same travel speed in light work conditions. If you're using an angled blade the snow will roll better too.
