I am not a big Bobcat fan, and I dont know what they typically go for, but here is a machine that seems decent enough, and at least it is on the east coast. They also deliver.
I saw on on machine trader that wasn't too far away and tried to call to arrange a visit. Got nothing but voicemail all day, so I decided to email them. They responded in an hour saying the machine had sold. After a little back and forth, they connected me with the regional sales manager. I emailed them my requirements. He said he had one coming in from NC, so I went to check it out today. It had 2170 hours on it. They were willing to add a thumb and two buckets in the quote. It was close enough to my budget to take a look. The machine had been leased to a pipeline company. It had been maintained well, but it was clearly rode hard and put up wet. One of the tracks was shot and on backwards! Lots of dings in the body that had rusted. The battery terminals were so corroded I could hardly see them.
Now I care much more about the mechanics than the cosmetics, but the cosmetics give an indication of how hard the machine was used. They had received two other back from the same lease. They were lower hours and more $ but they looked like they had been rode just as hard.
Whoever warned about leased machines earlier in the thread was certainly right about this case!
