Bobcat's new Korean owners war with Kubota killed in 2013 their CT certified trouble tractor program.
Mine has a backhoe and loader with an grapple aux. hydraulic port. The electrical valve, the entire dashboard go on-and off at their own will anytime for a few seconds or a minute. The 4x4 light dims.
The loader welds are poorly painted, the backhoe pins act worn. The black anodized hydraulic cylinders on the backhoe rust and have nicks I would not have with chrome. All way outside of the traditional A+++ Bobcat quality tradition under the previous US owners.
No wonder Kubota and others are pushing hard into Bobcat's turf.
After our 2010 Toolcat debacle with 9 failed software upgrades it is the second misfit toy. I should have stayed with yellow-green. Sniff, tears.
The local dealer tries hard but the new Bobcat ND owners do not recognize it as warranty.
