I have a new BOBCAT S205. reason why - in town, awesome service and other choice was a NH which I thought was ok but just liked the features of the BOBCAT. Always had CASE but there again, nearest dealer was 30 miles away and once i started having troubles - they were busy, I couldn't haul it, etc. CAT was great but about 1.5 hours away from me for dealer support. Anyway - I have the advanced hand controls - used to case's. I seem to really push the levers to the door to go wide open which is uncomfortable. I loved the joystick controls but I didn't need that big of skid. The 205 seems slow in regards to dumping and lifting the bucket all at once. What can be done to increase travel time? Also - maybe my hearing but I am thinking as I put hours on this machine - it seems to get noisier inside the cab. What can be done to muffel the noise?
