    Hello all, was hoping to find some help...There is an 04 Bobcat 5185 Turbo w/1200 hours listed in the paper for $18,000. Is this a reasonable price for this piece of equipment? What is the value of this item?

    I think it is probably worth about 15,500-16000 if it's in good condition. It's all relative to what it was used for, how it was used, and the maintenance and any extras.

    The price sounds a little high for 1,200 hours. However, if well maintained, she should last another couple thousand, but I'd give no more than $15K for that machine.

    I just got a call from my salsman & he has a 2006 S-185 with 175 hours. Cab, heat, air, radio, power bobtach, and they are asking 19,000. I am looking it what they will give trade on my old 743 before I jump but it won't take long to pay for itself
