About the only place I found the NH to be superior is in loading and stacking. But the 1845C and the 763 Bobcat were radius-arm loaders. The NH actually had better visibility stacking round bales. Otherwise the Bobcat and Case were better machines. Our 465 was one that had the boom recall, we patched them together for a couple years before someone stopped at another dealer and saw the pile of bad booms behind the shop. The one we got it from claimed that we were over-working it. Once we got the updated (grey) booms, we never had any more troubles with it in that department.
We used a Mustang one time, an older one with the T-stick control, it was a monster, you'd have a bucket full of gravel without even knowing it when pushing snow or cleaning up a barnyard.
I haven't run one much since I injured my knee, but I preferred foot controls because my legs didn't go numb sitting on the machine for half the day.
