Bobcat A300 any one have one?

I'm looking at a used a300 bobcat it's 2008 has 2500 hrs. It's got way more bells and whistles than I need and it's on the heavy side for my work. With all that said its the only model I can use because of the all wheel turn. Anything about the model that I should know.

How much are they asking and does it look taken care of.

A models are ones that scare me over 1000 hours. I used one everyday for 6 months with 1500 on it. All wheel steer is invaluable

It's very well taken care of it was states only plowed 2400 hrs has about 4 scratches supper clean and traded back to dealer! The work I do is not specific I could be on a finished lawn one day and a beach the next I just never know. The articulation of the wheels is a must for me no tearing of the lawns. I want the power and lift capacity not to mention the implements. But what kind of repairs am I looking at? Com paired to a normal skidsteer

I'd agree that's a high asking price for those hours.

Since you don't need all the lifting power of the A300, then check out the baby brother: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bobcat-A220-.../301188576074?

Omar's a very good guy to deal with too. Much better priced.
