    This will be my first new holland skid steer, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how it does. The comfort is beyond anything I could ask for in a skid steer, its very quiet, the controls are smooth and responsive. All in all it makes me realize how primitive my case 85xt seems, but it is a much older machine than this one.

    I got it with just about every option I could including the two speed, a/c and heat, hydraulic quick attach, weight kit, beacon kit, etc... I also grabbed a 8' snow wolf plow and a pro-tech pusher for it.

    These are just some cell phone pics on the way home, so I'll be getting some more detailed pics of the interior and such..

    We have the exact same setup on three of those identical machines. In all, we have 30 New Holland skidsteers and they are GREAT machines!

    Have a great winter!

    Thats great to hear, if you have 30 new hollands then I would take that to mean that they are decent machines. I don't see to many around here, but after testing out Bobcat, CAT, New Holland, Case, and Deere, I think the NH completely blew every one of them out of the water. Especially the bobcat. I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but for being the most popular brand, I was severely disappointed in their machines. The noise level, feel of the controls, local dealers, and other ergonomic issues immediately turned me off to them. Up until then I just assumed they were great because everyone has them, but now I'm really not sure why.

    I was sold at hydraulic quick attach.

    Seriously, greatest invention ever and a smart option. Best of luck with your new purchase!

    We bought a brand new ls180 back in 2004 I think, still runs great with no major problems, very solid machine!

    That's an awesome setup! I rented an L170, and I was really impressed. Good purchase.

    Nice looking machine, I have owned several LS 170's and they were solid performers. However, I traded my last N-H for a Deere 326D and comfort is second to none.
    Good luck with the 175.

    The wheel's on the trailer look exactly like the set I had on my old enclosed, correct me if I'm wrong but they're just a hub cab/simulator type deal.
