    Hi, I have been reading posts off and on here for a couple of years. I would like to ask if anyone has owned or operated a Kubota SVL90 and what they thought of it. I started my business about 5 years ago with new Bobcat equipment, and have since sold the Bobcat excavator and purchased a U55 Kubota. I would now like to sell my newish Bobcat T650 and purchase a SVL90. I haven't found any posts anywhere from an owner. Can anyone help me? What are the pros and cons of this machine. Thank you in advance for your input.

    if you weren't in BC i would buy that t650 of you for the right price. just the machine i am looking for.

    I have only heard good things about the svl90, that is a decent jump size wise, so i would look at a t750, or t770 first and compare.

    Friend of mine demo'd one and was talking it up at first but when he actually put it to work for a few days he said it was gutless. Not enough hydraulic power or horsepower. His words not mine. I have only walked around one, didnt even get in it. My Deere salesman told me the other day he had a new D series up at the guys place for him to try, not sure how he liked it or if he bought it, but he had a CT332 before he liked so it wouldn't surprise me.
