    Main use will be tree removal. But it will be *****d to my friend that does hardscapes an my Electrician friend for post hole digging for short Telephone poles and the posts so cars can't hit Generators when he installs them.

    As for the lift point its 2 pins and it lifts of" Extremely heavy though" so it will come off but may get used from time to time at a Local steelmill if can get good money outta them. The dealer threw in the cutting edge for free they really when above an Beyond to take care me. An last thanks for the Complement guys... May we all get Buried in white gold soon

    Oh...I didn't want to actually pay for it. Maybe there's a government program that gives away free skid steers to those who can't afford them. :laughing:

    Bestline Equipment in pa. Iv been in the market for 2 years an got treated Terrible by the dealer in nj, the jerked around by another dealer in pa. I almost have up then for the hell of it I emailed bestline an the came down 5000 on the price were 3 points cheaper on interest thenThe other 2 dealers they delivered it to nj free so I saved on the tax an then Threw in a 6 month 500 hr power train Warranty with the Option to extend to a 1 year 1000 hr full coverage Warranty good at any bobcat dealer in the USA. For 1200 bucks its was to good to walk away from. I did the whole deal threw email then drove out looked at it an had it delivered. An banksy I wish there was a skidsteer ferry or some one that gave them out for free

    Wait, 40 grand for an 09 A300??!! No wonder they were so nice to you....

    Anyway, I use my 753 and 463 for tree work. I will lay roads of alturnamats all over the place to get them on manicured lawns too. It is amazing how much less your back hurts at the end of the day! The big machine will be the TITS for clearing lots for builders and stacking logs in the yard.

    Again, congrats!

    Guys your comparing apples to peanuts. This is an all wheel steer machine that's 10000 right there. Then add a91 package witch gives you high flow,2 speed,Sound deafening cab,auto bucket leveling, Pilot controls get all that in a s650 an your over 50000 grand. Plus this machine has the wide turf tire kit 2500 then the lift point that's big bucks also. Google a300 for sale you will see they are all listed for 48000- 50000 I stole this machine an anyone that knows all wheels steer machines would agree

    I just googled A300 looked on one sight called machinery trader, and saw them as low as 18K. That one had almost 3K hours on it though. It's no biggie, just go out and make some money!! Nice machine brother.
