Hi all, first post here. I have been thumbing through the site the last week as I may be in the market for a Brutus in the nearer future. With the development of my mountain property soon to be going more from construction to maintenance work a robust workhorse UTV with some loader functionality could free up the need, and storage space of an extra tractor. I am also eyeing Toolcats which may be a bit of overkill, but am also worried that the Brutus could be underkill.

Otherwise my main concerns are if I need to only be looking for a Brutus that has the attachments I need (bucket and forks)? It seems from looking around the site attachments are rather a difficult to get a hold of after the fact.

And then curious as to how parts availability is looking now and what it’s considered to be going into the future? Some other older UTVs have some hit or miss track records as far as parts availability goes.

Thanks for any input

My only significant regret in buying the Bobcat 3650 is not just going for the toolCat instead -- half the reason is the Brutus/36xx product line being dropped (not that I could've predicted that) the other half being the vastly greater array of available accessories for toolCat.

I think it really depends what you are doing with the machine. I was skeptical of what the Brutus could do until I actually owned a Brutus. I have not been disappointed at all. I was most worried about the loader capacity and what it could do to pile things. Once I got it, I realized it will pile because it climbs the pile you are making and dumps on top [even with snow], continually making the pile taller. I had a plow, forks, and a bucket. I have sold everything but the bucket. The bucket plows well if you don't have a mile long driveway and really does a nice job with dirt, sand, etc. The advice everyone is giving you to buy a toolcat is easy advice, but you are looking at double the purchase price. Part availability is good, I have not had an issue. Implement availability is very poor, do not buy a Brutus without the attachments that you want/need, or you will not have that attachment.

Howdy all, first post here. I have been looking over the site the last week as I might be on the lookout for a Brutus in the closer future. With the improvement of my mountain property destined to be going more from development to support work a hearty workhorse UTV with some loader usefulness could let loose the need, and extra room of an additional farm vehicle. I'm likewise looking at Toolcats which might be a touch of needless excess, but at the same time am concerned that the Brutus could be underkill.
