    I need a little help. We rolled our Bobcat 873 on the interstate two weeks ago. Now I have to get a new machince. The 873 will lift 4000 pounds like your New Holland but I was wondering if you had some more spec information on your new holland setup. Also if you could tell me the size of trailer you use and the axle weights on the trailer if you know. I have to get a whole new setup since the insurance company is claiming the trailer, bobcat and attachments for salvage. Thanks much for your time. Phil
