Bobcats are solid machines. If they where pieces of junk they wouldn't still be the number one selling brand. I loved my t190. There was some people talking saying a t190 wouldn't lift a full skid of pavers. I have some pictures of mine lifting a pallet of them well above the cab.

Biggest mistake I made on my 190 was not getting a/c. I cooked in that thing in the summer!
Best of luck Jacob

We run a t190 for are grading business, and would not want an open cab machine. Our machine has 1200 hours and has been solid, we are just coming up to changing tracks for the first time. Other then that it just been PM items. If i was prepping sand bags for a storm chances are your going to be working into the rain and i would want an enclosed cab with air. It make it so nice at the end of the day when you get in your truck not to be covered in dust from an open cab machine.

No disrespect to you Krazy but if you plan on being in business and your credit is good. Go to a dealer and buy a brand new machine that will do exactly what you need it to do You will be able to depreciated the first year dang near a years worth of payments. I know this isn't a popular opinion but just my two cents. Btw to me a verticals lift machine is better to unload pallets off trucks and radials tend to do dirt work better.

None taken.
But I am in business and have been for 8yrs now. I don't want another note. I'm selling my current Skidsteer and adding a lil cash on top of what I sell the other one for.

Even if you don't go new go with something that isn't a problem child.I always look at a used piece as someone is getting rid of it for a reason , too many problems , needs repairs , need money ect , you need to find out that reason . Ask yourself what will you be doing with it in the future and buy a machine that will fit that need . If you have alot of work for it than you do not need any down time .Cab comfort................ A/C is a must your days are more productive when you are comfortable . If you are going to plan on running a brush mower or mulcher than you need an enclosed cab . All the big boys are offering 0 % so if you got 10 k out of yours and spent 50 on a new machine than your only looking at 667 a month for a new machine with a warranty and zero hrs that will do any and everything you need it to do . Its not hard to spend 600 a month in repairs and it becomes a write off.
