You already know what I'm going to say - <p>The Gehl 6635 can (on level ground, with both weight kits), lift 3200#.<p>I still haven't done much research on the NH, but it sounds like the Gehl has more beef.<p><br>By the way, met a customer who just bought one of those Bavarian jobs, an 840 (ci? I don't remember the letters). Told me the windows automatically roll up at 100mph - he smiled when I asked him how he found that out. Very slick looking car.

I haven't actually compared head to head. Seems like the case is shorter and capacity is pretty close to NH. I would run each of them and see which one was most comfortable and quiet etc. I have two Case's and like them really well but I don't have the 95xt. I have looked at one and they are nice, but they all look good at the dealer.

Going to try out the case and ASV next week(hope it drys out some) have a good wall job for demo site (double wall on edge of creek channel) lots of water and tight area. I know the New Holland but willing to try out others.<p>Stonehedge;<br>They do that to keep road noise down :) <br>new Wheels in this week 18&quot; rims and Z rated tires will open it up on sunday tell you how it handles the curves at speed :)<p>----------<br>paul<p><p><font size="1">Edited by: paul

the asv will do well in the water area a tree company in my area has one, however size may be an issue on certian jobs

Matt---Just found your decisiveness refreshing even though a little off color. Everybody should be able to tell where you stand on this one. :)<p>----------<br>Lanelle<br>

So Paul, are you still shopping and trying out new skid steers? Just wondering what the verdict is. And do the Z-rated tires make the BMW sweeter?<p>----------<br>Lanelle<br>
