I am looking to upgrade my deere 322 CTL and have my eyes on these two machines. For what I do bigger is better but we have been getting by ok with the 322 which is smaller than both the bobcats I am looking at.
The 870 is a beast but it has all the emissions BS with the DEF. The 740 doesn't. I prefer the size of the 870 but the emissions stuff is scaring me away. I plan to keep whatever machine I buy a long time maybe ten years and am worried about problems down the road.
