    looking for opinions on the JCB 214S 4 wheel steer back hoe. For plowing is it faster than the 214 and worth the extra cash

    I agree. The company I work for has a JCB and it's a POS.

    Sparky is right, go for the cat or john deere, jcb are trouble, we had the new contractor as its called in Ireland, it drinks diesel and aint good at all. Yet the cat would piss all over it and never gives trouble. Everyone over here loves jcb, but the cat is the better machine by far
