    Any of you guys own a Thomas Skid Steer? Looking at a 94 43hp..... T133 Kubota engine with 800 hours. Guy wants $8000 for it....

    We bought a 2000 Thomas 2200 with only 500 hrs. and love it. It has an 85 hp. diesel and will do basically anything we need it to do. The only downside to a machine this size is that it is very heavy, about 8000 lbs. Hours on that machine sound good, but it is an older one. $8000.00 sounds a bit high to me, but if you know the owner and the history that can make a big difference.

    We bought a 2001 153S last fall and we just put 15-20 hrs on so far but I like it. Kubota diesel and good name components. Seems good and strong for a smallish machine, so far so good. Good luck

    $8000 seems a little bit high to me as well... but as srk1378 mentioned, check out the maintenance and see if it's been well-taken care of.

    Thomas skid are solid machines and shouldn't give you many headaches.
