    I like the older Case/Kobelco 55's (like 2013 and older).

    I've been real happy with my Bobcat e50 with thumb and angle blade. I'm digging now with a 36" bucket and it's not having any problems pulling through rocky soil. I am also using it to dig up big oaks and stack logs and it's pretty stable with a load. I'm comfortable in it at 6 ' but like everything, it could use a little more leg room. So far, maintenance is pretty easy, too, with longer grease intervals and easy to reach zerks.
