The Gehl 7810 is impreasive but Bobcat made 2 machines that were bigger 20 years ago. and they do last a long time I have 3 of them that are still running that are 28 years old with over 10,000 hours on each. in the 26 years I have owened these machines I have spent less then $1000 on repairs on 2 of them and replaced the motor $4600 on the third. Bought all 3 of them used and if bobcat ever comes out with another one like these I will buy a new one. I figure the price would be someware around the $80K mark.itsgottobegreen;388642 said:Bobcat makes the best skid steers Period. I will only buy bobcats. Since they are super easy to work on. They run forever. Only other machine I would even consider is the Gehl 7810 since bobcat doesn't make a machine of its magitude yet.
