    There is a guy here selling a bobcat 863 with a few hundred hours on it, like brand new, brand new tires, service records for everything. Forks, tooth bucket, smooth bucket, brand new snow plow, brand new trailer (not sure of type, but one of the sqyuatty heavy types like a beaver, may be a beaver), and the vinly piece that can make the cab enclosed.

    He is selling for 23k, sounds reasonable, but want to ask the crowd that knows =).

    Thanks!

    Sounds like an excellent deal. Does the loader have 2-speed or AC?

    As far as I know, no. I am almost certain it doesnt have heating for ac, but not certain on the two speed. I think its like a 97 or a 98 btw.


    Thanks.

    If the machine is in good condition, it should be a worthwhile investment. The 1998 model year started the ramp-up for the F-series 863, so you may want to check out the electrical connections on those machines. While nothing serious should present itself, the F-series was the first Bobcat series to offer advanced hand controls -- so if your machine has those, maybe take it to a dealer or Bobcat mechanic to see if anything comes up.
