    Sounds like a good deal...and I'm interested in this as well. 05' A300 with less than 100 hours, 2-speed, Highflow, Gold package, Bob-Tach. Basically loaded with a GP bucket and a set of forks and a 12,000# trailer to boot. What would you pay for this set up? Are there any problems that I should be aware of with this year model?

    I'm guessing a 2005 Bobcat A300, fully loaded with trailer should go $40-45k. Keep in mind, A300 is the most sophisticated and complicated Bobcat loader out there. You have all the normal problems of a used skid steer, plus all the options, combined with all the AWS components. Most dealerships sell very few AWS loaders so finding a really good mechanic to work on your machine can be a pain in the a$$.
    Machine is pretty amazing when running. We kept ours in AWS about 95% of time. Cleared land with it and never hurt the steering components.

    This was a great find with 82 hours...$30k! We've decided it was to good to pass up, checked out ok with the Bobcat center it was purchased from.
