    They are replaced by the 773 F-series, which is now replaced by the G-series. So this particular model is older, but I'm sure the differences aren't much. 12 grand is alright I guess. Just check to make sure all the hyds. are working and check to see if the reservoir is dirty. If it is, don't even bother. It probably means that it has been mistreated. Check for the usual stress areas: lift arms, cylinders, bucket linkage. If it's been abused and pushed and worked real hard on jobs that are difficult for it today, it could be a potential stress fracture point. But mostly, these things don't happen. Just check for the unusual. They are made pretty tough so you shouldn't have to worry about that too much. If you can, take it out and run it pretty good. Do some tough digging and see how it performs and make you decision on a number of things.

    We have a 7753 bobcat with rubber tracks and a 36 inch Care Tree spade on it.
