    You can get hydraulic oil at Walmart, Tractor Supply or the local auto parts store.
    I buy all my parts over the phone. I can get most parts shipped cheaper than the cost of driving to a dealer.

    If you want to put your money into an orphaned Bobcat Tractor you can do that. I am going to keep mine in my pocket.

    I suppose as an owner who has the flexibility to see out parts for that what you've got, you maybe in a better position than the retailers that have to try and support their customers with orphaned products.

    I still have my Bobcat. Aside from the loader, is there a reason why I should be worried? I could not imagine that Kioti parts would be a problem to come by. Am I missing something?

    I know they are. I am disappointed, and it means I will have to look harder for parts in the future.

    But, when I bought it it was a current model. My point was, and still is, that when you buy an orphan you are taking a chance on support. I have had many years of use, and since nothing major, or even minor, has broken, I think I am OK for a while.

    If I were buying a TLB today, I would get an M59, an L45, or take the big plunge and get a JD 310, or a Case 580.
