    ...and pull it with a f150 5.4L?... on a serius note, no you would not be able to put this on a bobcate trailer, maybe a deck-over behind a dump truck.

    Nice machine, where in NY?

    Not to much help, but his phone number is registered in Equinunk, PA, so if the machine is in NY I would guess somewhere between Binghamton and Port Jervis?

    ok ok, relax guys.

    I am 4miles from the NY side.

    Hancock NY 13783
    Equinunk PA 18417

    Close to I81 or Route 17 in NY.

    Not sure about the rebuilds, or exact hours.
    It runs good, and these FORD motors are invincible.

    It is in good shape and priced pretty cheap, check machinery trader there are 1970's machines with 9k hours priced over 12,000


    Welcome to come take a look, I am negotiable on the price, for a serious buyer who has the ability to pay and pick it up this week.

    And no, you can't tow it on a bobcat trailer, unless that bobcat trailer is 25 foot long as rated for 15-20,000 pounds.

    Mapquest Equinunk, I am dead center, 20 miles from I81, 20 miles from Route 17.

    I also have a 98-99 Dodge 3500 4x4 flatbed dump, and an 89 f450 4x4 diesel with a 10 foot dump.

    Come tomorrow with $7600 cash, and drive it around a while, load it, and go.

    Offer is only valid until 5PM, or until someone on eBay buys it. :)

    Its not an actual date on the tag, I think its some code, you would have to look up.
    I am pretty sure its an 88 or 89, ill check in a minute.

    I thought it said 88. How long have you owned the loader for and have you used it much in the last year?

    I have owned it for about a year.
    It came from a Summer camp, hence the really good shape its in.
    It has been used around the yard here, to push stuff around, smooth out ruts, etc.

    Everything works, and for the price, $7600, you really cant beat that with a stick...
    These machines with 8000 hours are still work 10-12k.

    If anyone wants to go on a shopping spree there is a Dresser dozer, 315 Cat excavator, and a gehl skidsteer for sale, and the two dump trucks.

    I think the code does say "8812b"

    I picked it up in sort of a package deal, and its really not much use to me.
    It just hangs out and does trivial things like push junk out of the way, or smooth out some ruts in the yard.

    I considered getting some grapple forks for it, and keeping it around to use on log landings, but once again, its too big to be useful for me.

    It is just tied up cash, that I could use for other stuff right now.

    Thanks. It's a great deal but I'm over 6 hours away. I will say your making me a little nervous about wanting rid of this stuff so fast.
