Wow, how do they get 22k for a skid steer with 2700hrs. Sounds incredibly high.

That is way too high for an S300 with that many hours. $15k is what I think its worth.
I personally wouldn't buy a skid steer with that many hours.

I'd never buy a machine with 2700 hours. I'd never buy a snow blower either, I thought about it and then someone told me they had one and the snow worked its way into the air intake and clogged the filter stalling the machine.

What other work are you looking to do with a skid steer? If just blowing snow I would think a tractor would be less expensive maintenance wise.

I just bought a ss for the same purpose. Bought a s205 2spd, ac/heat, was told it had hi flow but didn't, 4000 hrs for 15k. Went through the bobcat shop everything changed, new alt, bat, fixed a couple fittings for 1k. Bought a 79" quick attach snowblower (erskine's factory direct branch) for $5300. It blows good. They match the blower motor to your gpm so low or high flow doesn't matter as much as you would think. If you want to buy the blower new from quick attach I think they have a buddy program that gets you 300 off and me a 300 gift card. Pm for more info or pm a number if you want to talk about it.

We are under 5 min for a double drive your talking of.

Also s185 s205 is what I would choose as its the smaller frame size with 2 spd. Above those the frame gets larger which means harder to get in tight spaces. If you are doing big landscaping you need to decide if you need a larger machine of course.
