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.

The quick attach is weak on the S160 I did'nt know about other models thats why I didn't say anything. I could keep going on goods and bads for both, but in the long run I would say what ever one you get a better deal on go with it. For what I use the machines for bobcat is better.
