BobCat Help??

I have a bobcat blower that Im trying to get information on. Im mostly searching to find out what I may be able to get out of it so I can sell it. I know nothing about bobcat so I figured why not come to the place for the best info.

Any how I looked at the tag on it and this is what I got for numbers, 724-5-10014

I have googled this number in different ways and got no results. Was hoping someone could give me some good insight or point me in the right direction.

Thanks for your help.

Bobcat

I've seen a couple of ads on CL in the past for Bobcat snowblowers. These were the ones where the impeller looked to run front-to-back rather than from side-to-side. IIRC the highest price one was around $200 and in fair shape in appearance. Sorry, best I can help.

Yeah this one has the impeller that runs front to back. It runs great, and is in fair shape as far as im concerned, I have someone that may be interested in it and I just dont want to rape him on the price.

Thanks Paul, Im going to check out CL now

I recently picked up a 5 hp 20 inch model, fixed it and sold it for 225. It ran perfect, they are great machines and if there was any support left I would have charged more. There is a guy in upstate ny that is a bobcat fan and has repair parts for them but stuff is a little pricey (would be worth it if you can repair yourself and intended to keep it). He has all the non-generic stuff for them, the bearings and shafts etc. My brand blower has the front to back impeller as well and they out perform every other snowblower I have tried. there is another guy on ebay that has 2, 1 5hp and 1 bigger, real nice shape but I think he is smoking something funny...he wants like $1200 and $1400 for them.

I would like to get another to keep sold for extra cash I needed at the time.

On petes vintage snowblower showcase he states they were known to clear utility lines with the discharge....he is dead on. Even wet slushy snow flies out and they rarely clog.

td5771, I wish I had the extra money to fix it up real nice and get a few hundred for, but at the time being I cant afford too. Its in decent shape, just needs a little sanding, some paint and probably some fresh grease. Im sure there are a few other minor things it would need too, but with out tearing into it thats what I can tell you.

Do you know/remember the site for the guy in NY? If so Id like to take a peek at it.

I didn't paint it or do anything cosmetic. no restoration just made it ready to work and made sure engine was fully serviced, nothing broken and greased everything that needed it. Every bearing on that machine should have a little flip up cap to put in generic 3 in 1 oil for lubrication. thats all it requires. along with lubing chains and such. there is a torque setting for the mechanical clutch on the left of the auger housing. I dont remember what it was and I had an instruction/maintenance sheet for them but the link I saved doesn't work any more.

Here is the website click where it says page 1

I believe most, if not all the bearings on it are the same.
