1979 Bobcat 313 with homemade plow for home use

9 months ago, we found a 1979 Bobcat 313 on craigslist for virtually nothing. Living out with about 1.7 acres, and a 500 foot driveway, a small bobcat can come in very handy. I bought the cat along with my dad. I use it in the warm months to maintain the mini-motox track, this winter, we decided to adapt my ATV cycle country plow for use with the cat.

Here is the finished product. All of the steel used in the build of a homemade universal bobcat mount was found in my Dad's neighborhood. His neighbors have a habit of throwing away steel bedframes...so he collected them. Free is always good!



Here are some shots pushing snow. Even though it is little, the 313 does a really nice job, even with 15" of snow:

Very nice, I am amazed that it actually looks like it could be alot newer. They really don't change the look that much over the years. Nice find!
