I think the loader arms are redesigned. I noticed something different when I looked at them this year they don't have the enclose the more open like bobcats.

I had no problem seeing anything out of them. The seat is adjustable front to back I believe. The cab is huge though for sure

I'm just going by what I have been told but appreciate your info. I would definitely try it out well before buying. I have also heard from somewhere else the kubotas lack hydraulic flow for brush cutters and such.

I've heard that as well. You know as well as I do you need to match attachments to the machine so it may be as simple as that.

I also heard there coming out with a 100+ HP machine for mulching, but no solid info on that yet

I think Youre making the right decision over a mtl. Take a look at metro bobcat too theres one in your area. If you come down tonpg I have a friend in forestville

If you call forest ville his name is Roberto. A t590 is about the same size as the 259.
