2006 Caterpillar 279C (This is what Im told the year is based on a motor tag I beleve its an 08 but not sure how to check)
appx 2200 hours
runs operates great
good tracks and uc
has full cab
heat and air
Runs and operates great!!!

I was looking for a skid steer about 2 weeks ago and came across a guy going out of business and bought 2 of his skid loaders from him one was a 247b and this one, wasnt sure which one I was going to keep as there both in good shape and work great but This one is a monster its awsome but way bigger than I will ever actualy need. Its much more fun to drive than the 247b just because this thing will move a mountain. ITs loacted in Bloomington il and we are currently using it but if you need it Im more than happy to sell it as its an extra.

Not real sure what to ask given I cant find any 2006 279C's out there period, I personaly think its an 2008 as I thought this was the first year for this so given that Hows $26900 obo sound?
