Good Ideas But Too Heavy Posted by Bill on 03/07/2012

The 230 weighs over 4,000 pounds with the front loader. I sink in anything off a hard surface. I like the seat, folding ROPS, instrument panel.

I have trouble shifting between ranges low, medium, and high. The swivel floor hydrostatic pedal is not ideal. Any dirt seems to go there and prevent full pressure.

I have lost several of the pins in various places on the tractor. Hydraulics on loader are slow. Very solid frame. Service from local Bobcat not the greatest. Takes them a long time to call back to set up service appointments or answer questions. I think I am going back to a Deere.
