    Bobcat S185 purchased new in Nov. 2012. Has 45 Hrs on it, so it's basically new. Has H51 package...heated cab, power bobtach, 2 speed, engine block heater. Has standard bobcat controls. I installed a Whelen low profile beacon on it when I got it, that would come with it($240). Price: $31,000. ( I paid$33,000 when bought new). NO BUCKET with this machine. I do have a older Snow Bucket 84" I believe, that I could sell with it for extra $$$(pictured with salt bags in it on the machine last winter). Also have a set of Wolf Paw snow tires that I would sell with it for an additional $1,000(very few hrs on them).

    There is no rust on this machine or rims, I Fluid Filmed all the lugs, bolts, and hydro lines before last winter. Pictures show dust and dirt stuck to the lug nuts. Wipes right off, I just didn't do it before pics. Located in Madison, WI. Thanks for looking.

    Was pointed out to me I posted bought Nov. 2012. Since that's impossible, it should read...Nov. 2011. Thanks.

    I am no longer going to landscape or do as much snow removal. I needed this machine last year for a condo account and as a tax relief. The machine is the real deal, 45 Hrs and basically brand new.

    Nice machine. A price of $27,500 should sell it QUICK! If you already haven't, try listing it on craigslist and a bunch of heavy equipment sites. I've noticed more lawn care/mowing equipment on here than anything else. Once again, beautiful machine!

    Its on craigslist, plowsite and lawnsite. I will list on heavy equipment sites down the line, but trying these for now. This is a good price for this machine IMO. Thanks for the compliments on the machine.

    Double checked hrs...actually has 31.5 hrs. At $29500 this saves you about $2000 off the best price I could find on a new machine with similar options. I can't believe I still have this....
