HA! I wondered if someone would catch that. No, I didn't get another Bobcat and no, that isn't my machine. The front idler wheel blew its bearings last weekend right before I was going to head to this job on Monday and I'm borrowing this one from a friend of mine. Mine was repaired today but I'll probably keep this one on site. Its an '05 with 270hrs + 20hrs I've added this week and mine is an '04 with just over 1,200 hrs.
Those who are buying parts, you don't have to buy brand name. The dealer wanted $767 for the part alone. I called another dealer and they were the same price but he then said "we've got the off brand too". The off brand was $400 and after shipping etc was $450. Labor will be next to nothing as I took the Bobcat to another landscape contractor I know and one of his shop guys took care of it for me.
