Garage
I don't own one but but miss owning.

In 1978 I bought a new pickup truck and put a plow on it ready for the 1978/79 season. I had bought a walk behind Bobcat to cut grass with from a John Deere dealer. I looked at his snowblowers, real John Deere 5/24, 8/26, and 10/32 snowblowers, plus since he was a Bobcat dealer, I had my eyes also on a Bobcat snowblower! As it turned out, I bought a used, couple of years old, 12hp Gravel Convertible, which I still have today and do not regret owning! Today I have had the privilege of owning, using, and experiencing a 1983 John Deere 1032 snowblower but yet have not experienced using or owning a Bobcat snowblower.

A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

I have a short video of my 7 hp bobcat in action but can't figure out how to load it on here for viewing. I will share video of this one when we get some real snow. Thanks for the comment!
