    I dont have a picture of my machine handy, but here are the specs......

    2000 Bobcat 751

    Less than 500 Hours ( I think its around 460)

    counterweight kit added.

    The condition is very good to excellent, I would rate along excellent, as I was the only user of this machine, paint is all in tact with zero scratches, dents or other cosmetic issues. Its a solid machine, also I have an eliminator rake.

    What is the general value of this machine, I am changing careers so I am thinking of selling. Thanks for your help.

    Enclosed station or open station?

    Manual coupler?

    Pictures would really help if you could get some.

    hyd. coupler was not an option on this machine. I would say you should be able to turn it for 9K, maybe 10K if you find the right guy.

    Used equipment is a buyers market right now. I woulden't even guess what it's worth.

    Are you missing a digit in the hour meter reading if 460 hours is correct why is it so low for a 8 year old machine ?

    The biggest draw back to people it is 8 years old even thou it has unheard of low hours.

    It was a machine that my father bought when he was building houses, we were getting charged about 2k to subgrade and grade out lots. The final neighborhood that he built was 27 homes, so it made sense to buy a machine and have me run it. The machine is really mint, always stored inside.

    Those hours are correct.

    You are probaby right. Maybe 11 - or 12 k on a good day.
