    Sold my dump on ebay to a guy from british columbia. 2500+ miles away. While he was here picking up the truck, he decided he wanted to buy the bobcat I had for sale..

    So we loaded it up and I snapped a few pics..enjoy.

    Was that a 743? If so how did you like it? A guy has one here for sale for $7K. Anything specific to check on? And I was wanting to bid on your truck, I thought it had another day left, he got one heck of a deal.

    We called up a rollback tow truck..drove it up that truck, leveled the bed out and backed the trucks ass to ass.

    I guess he did get a pretty good deal, if he's willing to drive across the country.

    It's a 751. Overall they're good units, check the pins and bushings, the motor for blow by, check for any cracks or welds and make sure the pumps arent leaking (there is an inspection plate on all bobcats to check the wheel pumps).

    Depending on the hours and year, $7k is pretty fair.

    Here's a pic of it. Was told its a 99, obviously been repainted. I'm still waiting to here back for more info. It's not much but it will beat paying $350 a day to rent, or $125 an hour to sub it out.

    Could just be the old style decals he used, but check the serial number, I'd be willing to bet it's older then a 1999.

    Check to make sure the paint isn't covering up any leaks/welds/cracks.

    Actually come to think of it, the last year they made the 743...was 1994!!!!!
