Now I'm just asking but does anyone know anything about the new Bob Cat line of tractors? They look good and price isn't all that bad. But they don't have a rally cool Group web page like "Orange Tractor Talk" buying a Kubota is worth the web group
Really? You just joined a Kubota forum to TOOT your Bobcat horn?I own a bobcat 1021 and have put many hours on my buddies Bx23s. Although I will agree Kubota has the better line up of accessories for the price difference and the specs the bobcat beats Kubota all day long in the subcompact world. The lift capacity is higher, the sub frame is superior, just the simple fact that the bucket is drilled for teeth makes it that much better. I could buy a Bobcat 1021 with backhoe for the price of the 2380 which you must upgrade to a 23x or 26x to have the backhoe attachment available and then your WAY above Bobcat pricing. I think you're going to see a lot of guys switching to Bobcat tractors now that they are building brand awareness in the tractor line.
You are comparing the next size up. The bx23s compares to the ct1025. If you are going to make the comment please compare apples to apples. You will still find that your 23s is more expensive as the ct1021 on up do not need the new subframe.I priced out all the TLBs in this size last year, and bobcat lost on price and distance to a dealer.
