Well no one would say anything on this so I went out and found out for myself. Compare a Kioti to a Kubota and you have a Bobcat. The Bobcat is a Kioti painted white. It is a better looking than a Kioti but every thing is made by Kioti and all the parts are the same.
I have always liked Bobcat skidsteers but I think Kubota has the tractor down pat. Better part availability, stronger service and a wider range of equipment that is proven tough and most important Bobcat doesn't have anything like Orange Tractor talk with Mr K. or Service Department Vic.
Long story short Kubota is the better of the Bobcat or Kioti in all I can see but it was fun looking over the compact market and testing driving other tractors.
