    Found a 2001 Cat 908 for auction this weekend locally
    3,635 Hours
    2 speed
    hydraulic bucket detach
    heat defrost, not sure on AC, didnt see the button

    I don't know much more, I did drive it for 15 minutes and worked it in the snow piles, seemed fine, no smoke and started well

    A few noticeable problems:
    1 Ripped and destroyed seat
    2 Rust at door and a few other minor spots
    3 welded bucket arm
    4 severed 6 pin electric line to bucket
    5 Average wear on body
    6 Only 3 of six lights worked
    7 Probably needs a good service

    Whats it worth to you?

    Thank you

    Supposedly a 2 owner, used by one owner to load wood chips, and the second to plow his driveway?

    Id really like to run a 12' direct skidsteer pusher on this to replace my 580SL

    That arm might scare me. You have to hit something really wrong or really hard to do that and if it breaks again and you need a new front arm it's going to be pricey. Call me after the auction.

    Didnt see that it was the lower arm. Now it doesnt seem as bad.
