A friend of mine who lives upstate just bought a Bobcat 763 cheap. It was a machine used in demolition and while beat up, runs OK and cost less than 4,000.00 due to a relatively simple problem. He wants the Bobcat for use at home, on the 5 acres around his home. Trouble is the machine has solid tires worn down to almost nothing, so we have to get tires. There's a debate here, he was thinking of regular sized tires with rubber tracks and I was thinking 16 inch wide flotation tires or something close. My experience has been that sand gets between tracks and tires and wears things out faster than normal, especially metal tracks. There is no mud there so to me tracks seem unnecessary. This machine will not be used on pavement so the tires seem like the way to go. When we got the machine there he drove it off the trailer, turned toward the garage and got stuck. Any suggestions here?
