The info I have shows 6550# bucket(foundry) and5500# boom for a s220 and 6840# bucket (foundry) and 6300# boom for a s250. Construction bucket breakout forces are unpublished, which will be substantially less than a foundry bucket.

frank -- out of curiosity, where did you find your information? Bobcat doesn't help me out on that one. :( Also, how do you know it's a foundry bucket that Bobcat uses for breakout force?
andyman, are you asking about the K-series or the G-series? What frank has provided is for the G-series.

I have a printout from a competitive brand that shows spec comparisons on each model. The foundry bucket is the standard basis for comparison, probably because it puts up the biggest numbers being the shortest distance from the hinge pin to the cutting edge. My printout lists the numbers specifically as “foundry bucket”.

That's interesting... I always thought Bobcat rated its machines with the construction bucket. Perhaps that's why we're seeing a decrease from the G- to the K-series -- maybe Bobcat changed its bucket used for testing.
Anyhow -- are you allowed to share the brand hosting the competitive specs?
