    My buddy has a new one, I dont know the JD numbers well but its the same as a S250 and he says he swears by them. I watched his JD and a Bobcat S250 run side by side and they were pretty much neck and neck but it seemed that the JD could lift a little higher.

    Landscaper we do a lot of dirt work for and plow for bought a 325 Deere and its unreal. Poor rear visabilty is the only problem. Extremely well balanced, smooth, and powerful.

    We have a 320 that we only use in the winter. The two guys that ran it both liked it but both said they would probably prefer a Bobcat. We got a great deal on the 320 and it's easier buying a JD because we deal with that dealer a lot. The cab is nice on the JD's, the door goes up above your head.
