    I dont know if im posting in the right place but im looking into getting a new skid steer. I have a bobcat S205 now and need a 2nd machine for plowing. I for sure need 2 speed. What do all you guys think case 430, new holland L175 or bobcat S205. Help i cant decide between the 3.

    i had a nh 170 nor enough power i got a nh 185 now and bought a boss 9 plow it will be fine i love nh but that is me. I was told and there are many posts about this but not to plow in high speed and if i remember correct only the 180 and up come in 2 speed. So my suggestion would be stay with the same type of machine you already have, you might get a good price and it will be easier for operators to use both machines if they are the same. I looked into bobcat but it was $5000 more than the NH and they took longer to get back to me so I stayed with NH
