While the NH are much the same there some differences between it and the CASE. It is mostly cosmetic but it is a more robust build I think.
I would echo what KSSS said. The fenders between the Case and the NH are different even though the machines mechanically are almost identical.

I had numerous hand control issues, inter cooler failure, blown lines, worn pins, and the plastic hood cracks due to the fact it can't handle the weight of the cooler or condenser that's mooted to it. IMO it wasn't ready for prime time.

I went in to the dealer to order some filters for my tractor and spent a few minutes shooting the bull with my buddy.
They are waiting for a C232 & C238 to come in. They have 2x C227 on the lot. His dad came out to say hi and by the end of our conversation, they offered me a free week demo of one of the C227s, so I can get a feel for the machines.

The 227 and CASE 270 are the same. They are pretty strong machines, more productive than their size would suggest.

KSSS it seems the 227 is a pretty tough machine and has some good reviews for power & size.

I ran the CASE version and came away really impressed. That was what prompted me to purchase the 320 without even running it. I felt it was stronger than the comparision Kubota 75 they had on site and a lot more comfortable to run.

That's good to know. I'm curious to see price between the New Holland C227 & Kubota SVL75.

Here's a good site to compare manufacturer's loader specs side by side. http://www.casece.com/en_us/Comparis...2&mn3=TL%20240

Never said it was. It wouldn't be very wise to purchase not knowing them either.
