    What do you guy's think of this model ? I don't know anything about skidloader's. I would like to use it mainly for snow removal but maybe some light work during the summer. The guy want's $5000, it has a 42" bucket and a snow blade, 17 HP Kohler gas, new tires, wheels & has been sandblasted and painted. I can't remember how many hours.

    Thanks for all your help !

    Make sure you can get parts for the Kohler. I had a 720 for awhile with a VH4D 29 hp +- & Parts can be kinda hard to get for the older engines. Even Bobcat was ?? about ordering engine parts. good luck

    worked on them before, the good news, it is very easy, and to be honest if you need a engine, you can buy a complete one, for a good price

    What part of Iowa? I grew up around Monticello in NE IA. Theirs a dealer in Farley or Dyersville, I believe that my Dad goes through for service on his 743 Schermans I think it is... 5K sounds a bit high, but I sold my 720 for $7K to some Mexicans who were taking it south of the border ussmileyflag

    Central Iowa, & I think your correct, it's a bit high. It looks good but I think it's like an old stripper (rode hard and put up wet with a make over) Thanks
