    In the courtroom I will deny ever knowing you and deny giving any advice.

    I am not the eBay seller. I just remember seeing it a while ago while searching "Bobcat" on eBay.
    Ha ha... ok. It looks exactly like the one I have on my tractor. Just curious. I haven't had a leak, but I may buy one just in case.

    Yes, you do need new hoses to install the new cooler. Not only is it built for better durabilty it is larger for increase cooling capacity. Have your dealer contact the BC rep, I would be supprised if he didn't approve for fair share of parts cost if not full cost of parts.

    gumshu, Same cooler fits all 200 model Bobcat and Kioti CK25, 27, 30, & 35.

    You could buy that $50 cooler on ebay and hope it doesn't start leaking in next 150 hrs. or have the new style put on and have some piece of mind. Easier for me to say because mine has the updated cooler on it.

    New cooler is the way to go. Several people have done it with existing hoses so I'll try that first.

    New cooler installed. Wow was that easy, expensive, but easy. Hope this one holds up a long time. I took the battery out for better access and I notice a lot of corrosion from the battery. That will need to be sanded down and re painted. Didn't have time today.

    SO YOU WERE ABLE TO RE USE THE HOSES?

    Existing hoses lined right up. I mowed with it for a few hours after the install and no signs of leaks.
