    Im looking into buying a 2004 Bobcat MT52 Kubota Diesel "700" hrs. descent shape, pritty rusty? Comes with an oversiezed bucket and forks. I was just curious what you guys thought I should pay for it?

    I bought a 2005 with 240 hours this year for $9,500. Best money I have spent on landscaping side of business. It only came with regular bucket with teeth.
    I would think you could get one for $7-8k

    Hey 2nd Nature do you know if bobcat makes a mounting bracket so that you can use toro dingo attachments?

    Not too sure about that. I just get all bobcat attachments. They have everything I have ever needed.

    Thanks

    I own a bobcat mt55 and have found that Forkster makes 2 adapter plates, one that will allow a toro dingo to run bobcat attatchments, and one that will adapt a bobcat mt to hitch up the dingo, vermeer, etc loaders with the smaller mounting plate. The only other thing that you may need to adapt are the quick release fittings on the hydraulic hoses, and I have been told on certain attatchments that you need to watch the lengh of the hydraulic hoses. If you own the attatchments the adapter plate will work great to save you a ton of money buying new attatchments, for renting attatchments it may or may not work out. I picked up a used auger and trencher attatchment that was bobcat and meant to fit my machine. The MT52, MT55,Bobcat 453, 463, and S70 attatchments can all be interchanged and use the smaller bobcat mounting plate, all other full size bobcats use the larger mounting plate.

    I started a thread at: http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=337189 with photos and details. Please check it out. I have more photos at my office but am at home for the evening. can post more tomorrow if need be.

    Bobcat dealer told me I should easily be able to get 75% of new price for attachments as they are basically like new - especially the backhoe which has only been used 4 times and lightly at that. The photos speak for themselves.

    New, the backhoe cost 6800, the trencher and tiller each 3700. Along with the bobcat, this is a $32k package. I am asking:

    backhoe: 5000
    tiller: 2500
    trencher 2500
    mt52: 13500

    package: 22,500
