Well this aint Trip but here is how to get ready for work this time of year.
I have 2 of these trucks, 2 980 cat loaders a 570A JD road grader, 2 4X4 Backhoes and 3 skid steers - - - last year we pushed no snow and so far this year only the church parking lots that I do for free.
Here's a couple of pictures of the 700 BobCat ( 1975) I rebuilt the V4 Wisconsin engine about 2 years ago.
Everything still functions as good as new or better. Notice the reflective tape, yellow strobe. It does not have heat but I made side panels that are easy to install and remove and with them if you dress warm it is not bad out. Since I bought the 277 Cat and the 328 JD both have heat and AC so the 700 does not get used as much in the winter. We keep it at the farm with no cattle and the others are where we feed on a daily basis so we are more comfortable. The 700 BobCat is the only piece of equipment I still have that is not diesel.
The weights are off a 510 MF combine - - - I tried to make it look like they came with the machine new. With them I can move a 2,200# bale of hay - - - without them it would just stand on it's nose.
