Bobcat got the deal merely because of price. Nobody knows what price Case quoted to the military. The days of $80 toilet seats are gone.
And those machines suffered and where very limited as the latest round of skids where S185's, if my memory is spot on. The thing wants to flip if you lift a small diesel generator let alone a tent lol. Granted I Bobcat's have their place but we don't use ours for anything much anymore other than lifting pallets and plowing snow. I think that they kept bobcat around because all the skid attachments are bobcat as well. Are unit messed up, we took delievery of 3 Bobcats a month before CASE signed the deal.
