You already know what I'm going to say - <p>The Gehl 6635 can (on level ground, with both weight kits), lift 3200#.<p>I still haven't done much research on the NH, but it sounds like the Gehl has more beef.<p><br>By the way, met a customer who just bought one of those Bavarian jobs, an 840 (ci? I don't remember the letters). Told me the windows automatically roll up at 100mph - he smiled when I asked him how he found that out. Very slick looking car.

I haven't actually compared head to head. Seems like the case is shorter and capacity is pretty close to NH. I would run each of them and see which one was most comfortable and quiet etc. I have two Case's and like them really well but I don't have the 95xt. I have looked at one and they are nice, but they all look good at the dealer.
