    Item Name: FS/FT 1998 Bobcat 863 sn-514420258 Maybe trade?

    Location: DOUGLASVILLE

    Zip Code: 30134-4227

    Item is for: Sale or Trade
    Sale Price: 4500
    Trade Value or Items Looking For: Tractor, cash, etc.

    Willing to Ship: No

    Bill of Sale Required?: No

    Item Description: 1998 Bobcat 863 wheel machine available.

    First the bad:
    • Engine needs work (probably a new one)
    • It's been beat up it's entire life
    • It's got wheels, not tracks
    • Seat is rotted out
    • Aux. hydraulics may or may not work
    • leaks oil
    • missing some panels
    Now the Good:
    • Hydraulics are awesome, very strong (when you can get the machine running)
    • Several new hoses
    • 1year old battery
    • Tires are airless
    OK, I admit it. I got too excited about owning my first bobcat and got one that needs more than I am capable of doing to it. After getting it, I realized that it was not what I needed anyway. A tractor or track machine would be much better for my needs.

    Will sell as is for $4500.
    Will sell with 14,000lb trailer to haul it on for $6,000.
    Would like to trade for a 4wd tractor.

    I will load pics (maybe tonight) as soon as I can.

    Meter shows about 3500 but I don't think it works.

    Pics are posted! I forgot to list it in the price but it should say OBO after the price.

    Seriously, send some offers!

    The last time I tried to start it I used a whole can of ether to get it going. The smoke screen was intense and it had to be kept near full throttle to keep it going.

    While it was running I used it to move about 30 scoops of mulch around. That was three last time I've messed with it.
