    I’ve always liked bobcat skidsteers, mini ex’s, mini skids etc. When the time comes, I’ll be looking for a tractor that I can use year round. Kubota seems to be the brand around here with a dealer only 5mins away. Bobcat dealer is about 30mins away, not too bad...but, has anybody used or have a bobcat tractor with a cab that they use for snow removal and other various types of work?

    Once you get in a brand new fully loaded Kubota, theres no going back.

    I thought bobcat tractors were kioti tractors and they stopped that a few years back.

    Haven’t seen many around.

    I just have a love with bobcat skid steers and it’s mainly because of the a300 and a770
    All wheel steer. No one has anything like it

    Bobcat makes the best skidsteers imo.

    I do not. I have spent winters in both a kubota and bobcat skid steer. While I love bobcat, and have no issues with them, the kubota felt a bit more luxurious.

    I had the privilege of using a brand new Kubota SVL70 years ago and it was a very nice machine.

    I thought Bobcat stopped selling tractors a few years ago...

    We run many Kubota tractors and I can attest they are well built. Almost everyday winter and summer we have one on the move well worth the money. My 2c. Not very experienced with bobcat tractors but have heard less then impressive reviews.
