you can get a radiator way cheaper than that and put it in yourself.

Bobcat people are loving this work. The guy that works for our company has been almost every day piling snow and such he says it is his best year ever.

We shelled out the drive pump idler pulley on our 853 Bobcat; hoping to get it back late today or tomorrow. Otherwise it is just the F1145 with blade or broom. Very effective machine, but we have a lot of asphalt to clear.

radiator wasn't even bad, it just had a leaking clamp. I think that shop was trying to rip me off. I know I can do it myself, just don't have the time...It keeps snowing and I need to keep the crews going.

Thanks!

Sounds like a couple I did (1 in GV & 1 in Raytown). There wasn't anywhere to push anything. The one in Raytown was all on hills too. Crazy times!
