    Default 1996 873 bobcat parts

    I just purchased a 1996 873 bobcat that has some fire damage. Were would be a good place to get parts for this? Is there any salvage yards out there? I know that I'm going to need a fuel tank, oil tank, and some of the wiring harness.

    The 1996 model is pretty close to the first 873s ever produced... so it may be difficult to get certain parts for that loader if a lot was changed (I'm not sure). Your best bet would probably be a Bobcat dealer parts department, or just go ahead and buy a used 873. (I say that because getting to the fuel tank requires pulling out the engine, I believe.)

    Well I know that the wiring harness from bobcat will run about $3,000 or so and the fuel tank and oil tank would be about $300. I know that I need that for sure. I'm trying to decide if I should try and fix it or just sell it as parts. It was basicly given to me so I have no money in it as of now. I might try and ebay it and see what happens. I was hoping that there might be a Bobcat salvage yard out there. I havn't had any luck so far.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Did you have any success finding a bobcat salvage yard? I have a 743 that I purchased without an engine, and I am having a real hard time finding an engine. it seems like no one is wrecking bobcats out there,
    Thanks,
    Chuck
