Hi, My dad wants to upgrade our mini. Currently we have a 2001 Kobelco Sr45-2 with around 1700 hours. The machine has been great with no major problems. Only real complaint is the cab is a little small. Currently working with Bobcat and Case to come up with a deal. One thing that concerns us is some of the specs with the Bobcat Arm force: 5332 with short arm and 4690 with long. Bucket force: 7650 Now the Case Arm: 5912 short and 5238 long. Bucket: 11,128 That's a big difference in bucket breakout force. Has anyone had any experience with either machine? Im wondering how true those specs are and if there really is that big of difference in the bucket. Also another thing is one Case dealer said that they quit making the case cx50 so that another thing were looking into. Waiting for some numbers to come back on the bobcat to see if we want to set up a demo or not.
