Strengths This machine starts quickly, even in cold Ohio winters, handles and rides well, seems to have plenty of power for it's weight. Dual joystick option makes handling fun! I've built ponds with it, used it to remove timber from woods, dug holes for pole barns and more. I enjoy using it.
Weaknesses I haven't found any weaknesses in the 4 years I've owned/operated this machine. I don't think that I could have purchased a better machine for my business.
Overall GREAT machine! Does everything I need and more. Bigger and more powerful skidsteers are produced but I don't need larger. My S175 is moved constantly from jobsite to jobsite and is a perfect size for this.
