    Where do most of you look when purchasing used equipment. I am thinking about selling my Bobcat S185 and would like to research prices and places to sell.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    On the Miami craigslist 90% of the postings are scams. Same thing with Ebay as well. If you buy there be VERY careful! Lots of companies sell their used skid steers to small companies or homeowners who used them infrequently. That's my favorite way to go because it just means more side jobs in the future.

    Don't seem to have that problem near San Antonio. In fact, craigslist has been great for us.
