    Looking at another skid steer to purchase for the upcoming season. Which manufacturer
    has the best noise reduction package on their enclosed cab ?

    Best noise reduction I've found is to get one with a radio and crank it way up. To answer your question, they're all about the same. Probably cat or deere would be the quieter models.

    I haven't been in all of them, but CAT has a prety quiet cab. As they say, its air tight to keep all dust and dirt out. I think it is remarkably quieter than my Bobcat T300.

    Has anyone tried out a new Case or New Holland. Since they are both built on the same production line I would imagine theres not much difference between the two units. Any
    imput about either machine ?

    A Droid razer with head phones on Pandora or a selected playlist also works well

    My S650 is very quiet. My S185 without the noise reducing material option in the cab is pretty loud.
