I have a new S650 BOBCAT. First is comfort and needs of operations. Second is easy of maintance which is oil, filters, hydro etc. Third is service if I need it. Fourth is be happy with unit but to achieve that you need to demo the machines, look each over and make the decision.
I have had sace machines in the past and one other BC machine. Reasoning for going with BC again was he is in town, a new machine, Cat has a dealer in town but it was hard getting a machine to demo, etc. I have a NH dealer in town but don't like there skids.
Really either choice you make of the above listed machines - i think you'll be happy. Lastly - no worry about price. There comparable but you and your operation come b/f price if you ask me for a machine that you put hours on and living inside the cab!
