    I bought the new Bobcat S205 with 2 speed! I should have within 3-4 weeks. Tried many machines in the past weeks, talked to many reps, to you guys here online and with the bobcat for the ease of attachments and dealer support. I did trade an older unit in so the price may be skewd a bit with a trade in but he treated me great, went the extra mile for me, the whole nie yards. That is what sold me on the unit over all.

    I have NH, Deere and Cat rep in town but no Cat dealer which is about an hour in half away - so therefore I went with the BobCat!

    I'll let everyone know how things work out over the first hundred hours or so.

    Now - what to get for snow removal?? - Bigger bucket, V-plow, pusher??

    congrats on you new machine:) I purchased a new bobcat about 6 months ago and the rep told me if you are going to have any problems it will be before 220 hours. For snow, the bucket is nice but with that 2 speed if you hit anything it hurts. I like the V blade myself. Best of luck with your new bobcat, let us know how everything goes.
