Hello, I farm with my parents and we have alway borrowed or rented skid steer for farm use and we are now looking to buy one. We have been looking at used ones but at least locally they are overpriced and the owners alway quote what the dealer will give them in trade. We need one that will pick up 1500 pound bales and we have tried oldish bobcats and case.The local dealers are Bobcat Case and New Holland. Most of the people we have talked to say now is the time to get a new machine because there are good deals and low financing. Does anyone have any examples of a good deal of a recent purchase?
