    Go to machinery trader.com. you can do a search on auction sale prices, watch the date of sale and you can look at machines that are for sale too.

    If your gona plow snow with a skid steer you are going to want 2 speed. Single speed is just way to slow.

    unless your in a wideopen lot single speed should be fine

    i would agree a 2 speed would be preferred but if it is a good deal this machine will be fine

    i would say that's pretty close..my 185 had 600 hours and came with a bucket, cab,heat,air,weight kit, foam tires, power attach, european light kit (blinkers,flashers , horn) for 18,000 ..... mine is a 2 speed...once you drive a 2 speed you could never go back to a single speed

    I'd say the low $ 20's would be a more than fare price on a machine like that. A 2 speed would be nice but it is not the end of the world as long as the job isn't too big. 7mph on a tight job will still run around a truck. The ls 180 is a non turbo machine. It makes 63 hp ,the 185 has the same motor w/a turbo and 78hp. Sounds like a good machine with low hours for that year. A heated facory cab is a 2k option, hydro mountplate is 600 ,700 for forks ,and dirt bucket is 1k new. Plus a pusher and snow bucket ,thats alot of stuff with that machine. Let us know what happens . Good Luck !!!
