I've never like the fact that Bobcat does not have stops at the bottom of the front of the machine to absorb the impact placed upon the lift arms. This is where Firefly's crack in the boom arm derived. I am certain of that. Back in 1997 when I purchased my 1st skid loader, the Gehl salesman pointed out this problem with Bobcat. Last week I received Bobcat's quartly magazine and I noticed they still don't have those stops on them, and I thought to myself "I wonder how many of their machines have been broken up from this".
I think you're right, Andrew. I've used a Deere 325 and a 322 and both had TONS of power and a good ride. Heat/AC are great, vis is really good. Not sure of pricing vs. other brands but they're a great machine. I'm sure Jarod speaks highly of the 332 he's got, always mentioning how he gains months of working time with the tracks.
