Strengths I had the rims inverted on this machine to make it 60" wide to fit into back yards with little or no fuss. This machine replaced a Bobcat 773 and I love the added power on this model. With a counterweightit lifts 2300 lbs at full reach and Im simply amazed.
Weaknesses Hydraulic tank seems to be prone to leaks but my dealer is top notch and looked after it. Im use to an 873 and have been getting a proverbial spare tire lately. The operator restraint seems a lil tight for my liking. I could diet and avoid the complaint but I would think they can give us a few more inches at the belly in that department without compromising anything else.
Overall I love the machine. Wish I had of waited a couple more months and got the 2 speed travel option that wasnt available when I bought. The A/C works great and its tough to get my guy's outta of this machine. It definetly an asset if your worried about clearances in back yards.
