If you ever blew snow with one of these babies , you'll know it's worth it. From what I've seen on the Internet it probably is less expensive to find a local machine shop to make your parts.

Most of the parts to go through a Bobcat can be sourced from Grainger, and a local bearing house. I've had a lot of single, and two stage machines in the last 50yrs..I have never had, or seen a machine that works as well as a BobCat. I like my 520 so much that I went through it a couple of yr's ago and installed a new OHV Briggs in it. It easily out performs larger and more powerful machines. And if there is a stronger, sturdier machine built today I'd love to see it.

If you have a "Fastenal" that could be another source. https://www.fastenal.com/
Are you searching the heck out of online sources for lowest price ??

Compared to rebuilding an old MTD, Craftsman or Ariens it might be more expensive but you need to compare what you'll have in the end compared to a new blower as that's about what you'll have if you go through it throughly and YES it's worth it (IMHO).

A few axta dollers for parts are worth it when you see the snow fly out it
