HI everyone. This is my first post. One heck of a place here. I'm a farmer, I have over 800 beef cattle now. I do everything with skid steers. Take the manure out of the barn, put it on a pile, move round bales of straw, level dirt, shale, move snow, load silage into a mixer wagon, load manure into a spreader. Man it takes a long time. I have two skid steers. A john deere 317 and a bobcat s-160 with counterweight. The john deere has alot more hours on it and had very few problems with it. Just got the bobcat about 4 months ago so not many hours on it, but no problems with it yet On the John Deere I had the front wheel bearing go out, the alternator, and had an oil leak. So I want to no what you guys think. Which one is going to give me less problems?
