    Well guys, the Bobcat dealer is giving me the run around, so I am going to my guy at the JD dealer.
    He worked me up a price on 2 models. A 328 and 332. Both are fully loaded except the 332 has standard hand/foot controls and the 328 has joystick controls. For the same money what one would u go with for the same money??? is the 328 with weights going to be able to lift as much as a S300 bobcat??
    And if anyone has experience with JD skids please share, I run JD farm tractors but don't know much about there skids.
    thanks

    unless you need the extra weight capacity you really dont gain anything going with the 332

    both machines will perform similiar in the snow
