In my town those are the brands to choose from. All others are within60 -80 mile from my place. Neighbor - contractor - has all new holland. Say that is the only way to go. I asked about Deere and Bobcat. He told me Deere skid is made by new holland?? Any truth to this?? Nothing good to say about the bobcat - but he didn't knock it either. I just want to know the truth!
