View Full Version : ASV MD70?'s

I have a good line on a 1997 MD70. The owner says that it has a PTO. Can you run tractor implements with them? It also has high flow anyone have specs? Also can you run regular bobcat attachments with them or is the quick attach different?

I have to let the owner one way or the other by friday.

any and all comments welcome.

I'm not sure how the front hooks up, I think it's a standard attachment plate. Sounds like the PTO is up front, so you'd need to get an adator plate that would allow you to attach 3 point hitch attachments to the machine, then the PTO would operate them.

The MD70 is such an old piece of technology and they aren't cheap still. I found various units online with tons of hours for $20K. I'd rather buy something else unless you could get a bargain of a price. But, it seems that they do hold up over time and are suited to heavy forestry work, etc..

So $8,000.00 is a good deal then:laugh:

Were those the ones that were reversible, with a loader on the rear or with the loader on the front combo's?

We used to sell those when I was at the CAT dealer here in VA. I think they even had a small 3pt hitch you could put on them and you could put the loader on the front and turn the seat around so it would look like a ag machine. I think high flow on them was around 25gpm with a flow meter on the machine.
