Hey guys. My dad and I are investing in a skidsteer...SOON. I found a machine I think would be just right for me and am calling the seller about some things about the machine. Not sure what year it is, but it's a Bobcat F-series 753, so it's newer than a '96 with new paint and tires and front aux. hydraulics. They are asking $9750, but if i can talk them down $500, I think I'd have a good deal, depending how many hours is on it. To get to the point, what are some things to look out for on a used machine? I read a thread on it a long time ago, but I can't remember anything. I know I want to run it for a while and put it through it's paces, check for leaks, general things. But what else is there to look at? I've run plenty of AG tractors, but I know nothing about skidsteers when it comes to buying used. I should have posted this in the heavy equip. forum, but I need quick replies and there aren't many people in there. Thanks for the help, I will keep posted!
