    I have the opportunity to buy an '06 Bobcat MT52 with 250 hrs on it for $8,500. Is this a good machine? Good deal?

    Anyone have one- how do you like it?

    Seems like a lot for a 4 year old machine now, w/o a bagger I dont think that machine broke the $10k mark when new. Low hours is nice though, idk exactly what it is worth or what I'd necessarily pay for it but $8.5k seems kinda steep.

    Holy sh*t. Biggest brainfart in the history of ls. I thought you were talking about a ztr. I'm pretty sure their older ztr have similar model names. I was wonderin why the header of the site was brown not green lol. I need to start reading posts more carefully lmao.

    Truely amazing machine. I love mine. I wish we would have bought one years ago.
    That price seems very fair for the hours. I would have a mechanic look it over to make there are not any major issues. My has over 1100 hours and still works like a hourse.

    I have one, it is unstoppable in wet conditions, and a great all around piece to have.
