853 Bobcat - Fix'er up special - Cheap power

853 Bobcat (1996 I think) with 2200 hours. 12x16.5 tires at 40%, aux hydraulics on front (never used), 58hp diesel, 3400 lifting. open cab, no frills. Bought it to have around during the construction of my new shop to move materials and do site work - I'm done with it now.

Starts and runs good. Overall, mechanically sound but needs the following: Has exhaust leak - think it's the exhaust manifold gasket. Loud but does not affect operation. The throttle is sticky. The lights don't work. The seat is pretty torn. The entire loader could use paint.

If you don't care how it sounds or looks, you can put it to work right away. If you fix the exhaust leak and shoot some paint on it, it would be a pretty decent machine. As I said, mechanically, it starts and runs good as is...

$8000 obo. New GP bucket in pics not included at that price but negotiable.
