    Those are big skid steers compared to what a person sees around here. No wonder your machine can pick up what it does the sucker weighs just as much as a small forklift.

    A/C, radio, hydraulic Q/A is standard on the cabbed version, the 100 series only had a full cab with A/C, the rest was the buyer's responsibility, like I did.
    Other thigs like slight paint scheme change and TIER regs, and the 250 has the Kubota engine.

    Is it just the 250's that have the kuboties in them? I was thinking the 240 did as well.


    Anyone have any experience with the kubota engines in the 250? I think they dropped the HP a tad.

    It's the same 3.8L that is in the Bobcat T320 except that it is tier III and the T320's isn't.

    Electric sjc controls that cost 2k to replace and have to be dealer calibrated when they fail. Electronic gizmos in the cab to spend money on at 1000 hours.
    Maybe not stone age, but would be better off if it was.

    And the fact that the cabs are tiny, and the joysticks suck- sloppy, slow...:)
