    I have a 1996 Bobcat 763. This skid steer was all rebuilt. That is why I was asking if anyone had any ideas of where I could find some trade in values on it. But thanks for your help so far

    There exists a type of blue book for used equipment.
    Actually it is orange in color, at least it was the last time I saw one.
    The equipment dealers in your area should have one, at least you should be able to acquire the name of the publication and possibly order a copy.
    Or ask to see theirs and objectively evaluate your equipment.
    Regarding value on your machine, depending upon who did the rebuild and their qualifications, expect no more than 15% of the cost of the rebuild to equate towards increased value for your machine.
    One factor that is heavily influencing used values is that the building economy nationally is experiencing a slow down and the used market is flooded with equipment right now. This has slowed down the sales of new equipment which has resulted in some manufacturers offering ridiculously low APR rates for new equipment.
