    Nice looking machine. What kind of tires do you have on it? My dads been looking for some. They seem to do well in the snow.

    Thanks, I'm not positive on what kind of tires they are but I will check them tomorrow and get back to you. I do know we got them from our local Bobcat dealership, and these are by far the best tires we have ever had for plowing on this machine.

    Thumbs Up Those machines are rarely seen, but you seem to make good use of it.....suprised you dont run a pusher on it.

    Yes extremely rare, I have never seen another one in person. And only a few in pictures.

    We mostly use the machine to push windrows that the truck makes, to push back snow banks and do snow removal. We don't use it for normal "plowing" so that's why we don't have a pusher for it. We used to have a pusher for it but we found we used the bucket more often than the pusher because of the volume of snow we were trying to push. It was just to much weight for the machine to handle. So why spend the money on a pusher when you can only push what the bucket can hold.

    We have a light material snow bucket on an s 175 and that is so versatile in moving snow.

    You wanna buy another one? Its got about 800hrs on it, 3 buckets, forks, and backhoe. I bought a cat 420 and its just a smidge quicker.

    I thought I was the only one with a 2410. They are awesome for push backs. We use ours to load the sanders and for push backs. Bobcat does not make them any more. I think they stopped in 93.

    Nice machine :salute:

    I plowed with a 2410 when I was a college kid at the U of MN. It was a beast and I've tried to find one to purchase ever since I could afford to do so. I found a 2400 on Craig's List a couple months ago but it was junk.

    You could easily push a 10' box with that unit in case you'd ever want to get away from the bucket :nod:

    That's pretty neat, it definitely has a bit of speed to it!

    I like the strobes in your clearance lights on your cab-over too.

    Do you have any trouble getting parts for that machine? There have been a couple smaller ones popping up for sale around here lately, but I've heard they are hard to get parts for.

    Hey I see you're in MN too...if you're referring to the machine in Winona I checked it out and it's JUNK. Don't even waste your time.
