    mr sops,

    Do you run any s300's? If so, how do they compare to your s330?

    i have ran a s250 and a s300 which i like very much, the reason why i went with the s330 has it lifts 300lbs more then the 300 and it also gives you a little more hp and we cant forget im getting 2'' more when loading a truck because of the tires being bigger. i honesly thought there def was a differnce between the s330 and the s300 its like like a s185 and s205.. s205 just feels so much stronger

    Let's not kid ourselves, the horsepower difference between the S330 and S300 is 4 ponies. The 330 is also heavier, so that 4 horses basically rubs out. In my eyes, they're the same machine. I know torque and a little larger displacement plays a role, but seriously, it's not a stunningly bigger and more powerful machine than the 300. If Bobcat was smart, they would've offered over 90 horses in the 330, guess they couldn't figure that out.

    The S130 is a reat little machine, it's one of the only loaders that still has a solid lower loader arms on it, kudos to Bobcrap on that.
    But put a high impact attachment on it and watch it dribble oil everywhere.
