Bobcat 863

What do you guys think about this rig?

1997 Bobcat 863
-1700 hours
-front auxiliary hydraulics
-hydraulic bucket positioning
-front and rear work lights
-backhoe mounting brackets
-72" smooth bucket
-Tires are about 80%

$10,000

Good deal assuming it is mechanically sound?

THanks

Just shootin' from the hip I'd say yeah, it sounds like a good deal, provided everything is in sound condition.

Thanks for the tip. I have been evaluating leases and it seemed to make good sense but, since I am just starting out I want to keep costs as low as possible. I have been thinking of finding something in the 10-15K range and putting a good DP on it so that my monthly will be low even over 24-36 months. Then at the end I can evaluate how profiable of an investment it was and go from there, trade-in on new or keep or sell and move on.

Anyway, I would be happy to hear feedback on the success of leases for your businesses.

Thanks
