MT52 miini bobcat

I located one. 600 hours. diesel. bucket and forks come with it. 2009 dealer is asking $12K shape over all is decent, alittle worn paint here and there but overall decent shape. Dealer just put new tracks on last week. Thoughts - good machine? Good price?

Price sounds pretty good. I rented one over the weekend for a job, I loved it. Actually thinking about buying a Mini skid in the spring. I was really amazed at how much it would lift and move. Made ease of tearing plants out and very liTtle turf damage even after it rained.

I have rented BC, Vermeer, Toro and DW. Dw was maybe the nicests machine but for what we do, used is fine, BC seemed solid and for the right price well maybe this the one to get.

I really like the DW. They have a lil more lift height and lift capacity.

Man the DW is so much more machine and the difference new DW to used BC 52 is 7.5K Surely you could find a used DW that would be a better deal and better performer

Not understanding your "difference new DW to used BC 52 is 7.5K"

Roughly $21500 with tax. Just unit and reg. bucket. Already priced new machine. Looking to spend half that for a decent machine if out there. Cuz at $21K its hard to justify new machine.

I have rented the MT52 a couple of times. They are an awesome machine. As far as value and is it a good deal? I'd think so. I'm keeping an eye out for a decent Toro.

I can tell you I purchased a new DW with forks and a larger bucket of my choosing and after tax paid less than 21,500. You should be able to at least get them to throw the forks in for that price. they have the year end coming up and should be motivated
