If your ganna run it in the cold cat by far started better and quicker then bobcat. The bobcat hydro is quicker then cat I think, paid 17xxx with trade in on a case 40xt that was a piece and paid 33xxx for a leased bobcat also traded old S160 got 9xxx on that.
I gotta call you out on the "built better" statement, Bobcat's loaders are plain weak, and even with the new M series, their quick attach frames still twist when the power-tach cylinder over extends. Look how little Cat's loader frames have changed since 1998. They have the strongest lower loader frames and quick attach frames next to Takeuchi. I have yet to twist out company's 277C loader frame more than an inch. Don't even get me started on the difference and better quality in Cat's cooling system.
