Looked at a few different brands before purchasing the Bobcat. Purchased this one because of the free loader program that was available. With the free loader option it saved me over $2000 compared to Kubota and New Holland.
Being this my first Bobcat, I must say that it is one well built machine.The only issue that I have is the paint. Surface rust was visible on the loader and the tractor. Other then the paint, I am happy with the tractor. Controls are very easy to use and well placed from the operators seat. Power from the diesel is more then adequate for my applications. I would recommend this tractor to others.
