Found a Bobcat 371 for sale in the local paper. Called on it tonite, owner says it runs and works well, he is just looking for a bigger machine. Has a Wisconsin 20hp replacing the Kohler 14hp engine, has two buckets, one 36" and the other 5'. Says one of the lift cylinders leaks a little. He used it for moving snow and dirt wants one to remove trees and said this one is a little lite for that, before that it was used on a farm probably cleaning barn stalls. I forgot to ask about the condition of the tires. I think this would be a good machine for me I don't need a big skid steer, I want one for moving snow, a little dirt, making ATV trails, landscaping and clearing some brush. Any advice on what to look for when I go look at it tomorrow? What would be good price range for this machine? How easy is this model to work on and maintain? Thanks for any help, Ash

I didn't end up looking at the 371 today, rough day at work and bad weather. I did call a local Bobcat dealer to find if parts where still available. He said most were for that model. He thought the guy was asking a little too high of a price ($2300. firm) for it for the condition (agreeing with everyone here too). If I was buying it from a dealer with a warranty (in good shape) that would be a fair price. He said he just sold a nonrunning mechanics special for $300. (needed everything). He wasn't trying to sell me anything either. So I think the search continues. Thanks for all the advice, it really helps! Ash

Good little toy the 371, 500lbs lift. Any more then that and your on your face. Belt drive type machine, with chain drive in the lower unit. Look at the belts, hoses, tires, and the frame work. Make sure its not all bent up and or bad welds. I just rebuilt an engine in one and redid a cylinder yesterday in it. My guess on price is $500-3000

Look for to much play in the handles and foot levers. Look for sloppy welds. look for play in pins where the arms pivot. Ask when the engine was replaced. cutting edge on buckets. smoke when it starts does it continue? Ask for manuals, spare parts (filters), chains, etc.. Look for rotted or split hydraulic hoses. Good luck...
