"Taking away" may be a little bit of a stretch, but I agree that the Kubota engine brand helped Bobcat. I guess I can't blame Doosan for going with an engine that they make on their own. It will definitely increase Doosan's margins by not having to buy from another OEM. Not sure if there is any net gain for the Bobcat dealers since I don't see Doosan/Bobcat lowering the dealer's prices.
Don't forget that all of CAT's compact equipment will have Kubota engines too so Kubota won't exactly have the market cornered with their engine.
