    Also that looks more like a 743 or very early 753/763 series. Not the g or k series.

    I'm assuming they bought or took over the rights to the design from bobcat and are now selling the same thing.

    Probably make some good money doing so over there too.

    The bobcats have a vertical lift in the s series, that is a copy of a 15 year old design. I'd buy a used bobcat before that.

    That machine is not 15000 itis 21000 after delivery and then the import taxes and trucking from port and warehouse fees. By time said and done it will cost you about 23-25000 thats without epa, with epa engine like perkins or something add another 3500 to 4500

    i have tried that, machine in the factory. I have been to their factory. They are not bad machines.but in terms of full size skidsteers they are not as good for controls, i didnt like them much. Thats why i have never brought them in to sell.

    Only way they are worth bringing in is by full container load.by all means the skidsteer is ok and would do the job, but there is not a big enough market for them to sell, with discounts from bobcat and other companies your better off buying one of the brand name ones.

    The nicer model is the 1605 model and would cost about 40 to 45000, tried this one. It was a really nice machine, I liked it. 2 speed 23 km/hr and can lift 3.2 ton max rated for 1.6ton. Perkins engine, rexroth pumps, high flow hydraulics, around 40 gallon per min.100 hp engine.

    the inside of them are basic though, not nice and designed like newer bobcats.

    Its a grey market machine, I have looked at several loaders like this.

    Basically the entire machine is made of common parts, cummins, rextoth.....exct.)

    You can always find a part to fix the machine but they are not worth anything in resale.
