    looks like someone took an older 763 cut it up and made a custom loader out of it. Maybe call the bobcat dealer and see what they can tell you about it.

    I know it isnt home-made, as one of our tree suppliers has used these for years, just cant find a whole lot about them so far. Going to talk to the local dealer today and see if they know anything.

    Good luck finding parts for these. And if you do be ready to pay big. When my dad was looking into wheel loaders we found 2 of these. 1 was a parts machine and the other was operational. It still needed a ton of work. My local dealer said he would even have a hard time finding parts. Honestly I would keep looking.

    Parts availability could be a problem. I've heard they arent a very common machine. Didn't have any luck at the dealer today, the guy I deal with was off today. Hope to find out more tomorrow. Has anyone actually ran one? Almost seems like it would be a bit small, but then I tend to want to go bigger on equipment.

    Pry be better to pass on it then and get something where parts are a little more avaliable.

    My Bobcat 50 Years book shows that model being made from 1983-1993. By the way the ad has been deleted. Probably sold!

    Yes I see that. Maybe someone needed a parts machine real bad?
