    Has anyone gotten pricing on the new style bobcats (ie t650 , s650 etc) I am awaiting a call from my dealer this week, but just curious as to what any of you guys have been quoted.

    Must say big improvement over the k series!:weightlifter:

    TSS i got the chance to run the s630 and all i can say is WOW. Half hour later i was telling my dealer i wanted a price on one because im thinking about trading in my 2005 g series 205 on it. It acutally felt like i was running a s220 but this machine was nicer.. Visibility is incredible, Power is there and there a lot easier to work on under the cab now. Nicest machine on the market by far.. Did you have the chance to run one yet

    I was quoted on a S630 a few months back and it was surprised by the price -- it was good. I run a 220 in my fleet right now and if I recall, the 630 was about 3g less than that unit. My rep quoted me on both to showed me the difference. Not bad for a brand new and improved unit.

    I just bought a T650, loaded, with roller suspension, 3yr extended warranty for a little over $57,000. If you want the joy sticks add another $2,000, high flow $1,600.

    I run 84" combo buckets, so with the loader, a new bucket, and taxes it comes up to about $68,000.

    This is replacing a T250.

    High flow is only an extra $1600? How much gpm/flow is high flow?

    I tried the T630 first and I think it's rated at 2300 lbs.I run a 84" bucket on it and it couldn't handle it the way I like.

    I go fast and hog a lot of dirt.

    The 650 is does fine with the bucket, no difference than the 250. Although it is only 74 hp. They claim it burns less fuel but I checked and it burned 3 gal an hour, the same as my 250.

    If you don't know they weight about the same but the 650 is 6" shorter and the track is 6" shorter.

    I had a demo for a week and they had to build the new machine so I'll get some pictures when it's delivered. Really nothing you can't get off their website.

    I think high flow is 30.5 gpm at 3500 psi.

    I sure wish Bobcat would put the v3800 into these new chassis so you can get at least 37 gpm.

    I would agree they need to have more flow, that $1600 seems like a waste if that is all it is.
