After considerable research, experimentation and debate we leased 8 New Holland L220 skid steer loaders in the fall of 2011, and a sub contractor purchased a Case SR175 this summer. We also utilize another 7 Bobcats from a 751 to an S300. Last winter the machines performed quite well. The didn't get any use this summer. This autumn they had a full dealer servicing which amounted to $550-600 per machine and at that time they had 130-180 hours on them. The dealer also performed a recall service on the units which involved the engine belt/fan pulleys/etc. Since then all has gone downhill. We have 210-280 hours per machine and in the last 2 months have experienced: - 2 complete engines failures. Both engines were removed and brand new ones installed. Time to complete: unknown as only 1 has been finished. - Approximately 12-14 broken belts. Apparently the recall went poorly. - Alternators have to be re-installed with a new bracket and them shimmed. Several alternator failures so far. - Complete failures involving electrical issues: who knows what or why but they have to be dragged back to the dealer to have work done. - Windshield wiper motors: 2 failures so far. - Door hinges: several failures where the hinges corrode and snap. - Seat sensor/seat belt issues. In summary: 9 machines x 240 hours on average = 2,160 hours with 20+ major failures. The New Holland district rep has been totally useless. He/she has missed the last 3 meetings, albeit 1 was due to bad weather. What's up New Holland / Case???
