Bulmor seems to be best for me. Easy to repair and comfortable for the operator. I'm just talking about diesel 5 ton conventional machine.

The best side loader I ever had to look after was a fantuzi and I've worked on a few different makes from Lansing to boss, but I always thought the fantuzi was the most reliable.

In my opinion it would be Valmar, they are so much better than any of the competitors today. This is because they stem fro SSP Stuart Hull desigend the platform for this truck in the 80's. It's been copied but never bettered.
