Thinking about it, the Bobcat rep never got back to me either.

Yeah it makes you wonder. Thing i like with the bobcat is that when the tracks are out it is prity much a zero tail swing too.

How much is a normal u10 nowadays.

1 of the landscapers who we go on hire to bought 1 and it was 10250 plus vat.

I didnt rate it as it was way to tippy and it only went down to 750mm.

10250 must of been used.

I would say around 12-13k plus

Well its finally here, well i say here.....its in the country. Just got to send the moolar off then go and fetch it.

Then its time for the old jcb to come in for some tlc as it has developed a soil lubrication system somewhere underneath.

Very well. It's put more hours on in a year than any other machine I've got.

It's great been a zero tail swing, when you jump on the jcb micro you realise how restrictive it is. Although the jcb 8010 I have is slightly more stable.

It has plenty of power and it seems put together well and paint quality is much improved over old ones.

I've only one niggle and that is it doesn't have a free flow return on the auxiliary pipes, which means it's a bit of a pain with one of my hammers that has a blank fire protector on it.
Oh and another niggle is the slide out extenders for the blade, they clog with muck and jam when closed.

I've had 1 hose let go the other week and it was a little pin hole in it, bit of a bugger to change as it was from block to boom ram. It was probably covered under warranty but by the time I'd of rang it in it was up and running and was only 60 for it.

One thing that they have now altered is the track motor pipes were vulnerable so ive fabled up some protection out of some 6mm angle but like I said they have changed them now.

All in all I'd be buying another.
