looking at a new holland LS190 and bobcat 873 for loading pallets of stone. Can anyone help me decide which is the safest for weight of 3,000 lbs? The LS190 has all attachments I need, The bobcat I would have to buy weight package and forks. The price difference is very close, its safety I am most concerned with Thank you in advance

I don't know what the ROC of the LS190 is, but i know the 873 will lift that load without a problem. Its ROC is over 3,000 lb and tips at a lot more, i doubt you will need weights for it, but it will make it a little more stable. If you go the 873 try it out before you buy weights, if it feels good and doesn't want to tip don't worry about the weights.
