I have been looking at 40hp tractors with loaders for some time now. Just recently I have been more interested in a Bobcat because of the power and maneuverability. I will be doing complete lawn installations with a lot of retaining walls. The tractors loaders usually max out at around 2000lbs. while the bobcats loaders can lift anything. This will come in handy when moving pallets of block around the property. The obvious comparison between the two is the speed, its like cutting grass with a grandpa's garden tractor instead of the new zero-turns. Any input from anyone who has used both pieces of equipment please help!
