bobcat t770 price

Anybody priced a new t770? I got a quote of $81,000 for
2013 t770
Cab with heat and air, radio, suspension seat
Sjc controls
High flow
4 in 1 bucket

Does this sound like a normal price? What would be a good offer to make for the machine?

Better move before the end of the year. My friend at the dealership said that Bobcat has just sent out the price increase memo for 2014 and he used one word to describe them, "Outrageous"! He said the 500 series is taking te biggest hit because of the new engine and Tier IV, but the 590s are going up well over $5k.

770 is a better buy. Very few people will see need an 800 machine

I priced a 770 with forestry package high flow A 91 package it was in the low 90s. I have had a 299 D as a demo for the last month and a few and it is a nice machine. I feel that it is a more comfortable machine to run.

I just looked over and compared the specs closely and you are correct. performance wise its a very small difference, the big difference is the weight of the machines. T770 comes in at 10,327lbs and the T870 at 12,688lbs.
Hp is close, T770 at 92hp and the T870 at 99hp.

I will be buying a T770, thanks whiffy

Heres a nice T750 I saw last week at my dealer, would be a little nicer if it was an enclosed cab.
