    Default PRICE CHECK BOBCAT CT230

    Hello everyone. Long time lurker first time poster. Ive finally decided to take the plunge and buy a respectable tractor. Was originally looking at a new Cs2410 new but stumbled upon the following:

    2012 Bobcat CT230
    Quick release FEL
    110 hrs
    kubota 4590 3pt backhoe
    Still under warranty for a few months. Homeowner owned.

    16k Delivered OTD.

    I was quoted 12k for a new CS2410 and the only included the FEL.

    Thoughts?

    You don't want a 3 point BH, too dangerous. see http://www.tractorhouse.com/list/lis...0&ETID=1&byp=1

    Since you said in your other thread (above this one) that you have two acres, and would need a BH once in a while, I'd worry about the tractor, forget one with a 3pt BH, and use the cash savings to pay for renting a mini-ex, or BH a couple of times a year. They will work better, won't take up space, and will likely be less expensive in the long run.
    Life is short, time is precious, buy enough tractor!

    Yeah, I wouldn't go with a 3PH backhoe. It can break your tractor. Price would be OK if a frame mount BH. But not for a 3PH one.
