    1036 hrs. is not a lot of hours on that machine for it's age. That S-150 has a kubota V2203 engine, hydrostatic drive system is same as used in this size machine since introduction of the 753 in 1991. If there were any reliabilty problems Bobcat would have changed systems by now. Keep the fuel clean, grease it well regularly, and change oil & filters as recommended in Op manual. As far as price goes, that depends on area of country you are in, but if it is in good as shape as advertised sounds like you won't go wrong.
    S-150 is a 773/S-175 with a radius lift arm. 773, S-175 same powertrain but have vertical lift path boom.

    Only other different if the 773 and S 175 are turbocharged while the 150 is not.

    Is it affected to the fuel consumption?
