hook a sct programmer up to it and turn it up. Just kidding, it might just be gear ratios my friend. John deere may have a different gear ratio then the bobcat there for the deere like always goes faster and wins. But I bet your bobcat has more torq and hauling capibility.

I have never been impressed with Bobcats. We tested Deere, Bobcat, and Geihl before we bought one a few years ago. I know what you mean about being weak. We were looking at the largest each company had to offer, and went with a 110hp Gheil. It was like a D6 with tires. You may be able to turn the pump up, but i'm not sure. What kind of engine does it have?

You've got to be able to diy an intake/ downpipe and muffler delete! Maybe a turbo upgrade. I bet you could put a stock psd turbo on that thing. It would probably take some cutting, but man that would be cool. We went with case, I didn't really like the bobcat either, but we were'nt looking for the big ones.

No I don't think so. It would be cool. Bobcats are way underpowered
