There are hundreds, no, thousands of used skid steer snow blowers on the market. To find a well-maintained snow thrower that will last you for years to come, you will have to spend time doing some research and most likely you will have to look at more than one.
While looking at the machine you will be able to see if the previous owner or owners have taken care of and maintained it. It is a good idea to buy from a dealer that you maintain a relationship with or someone you personally know and trust.
If you don’t have a personal resource to buy from then check out your local dealer or do some research online. You can get some good deals via an online ad or offer.
The most important thing to factor in when buying used is to remember that a thrower is built to the exact hydraulic output of each bobcat. That means if your skid loader has lower or higher hydraulic output, you could have significant performance issues. The two worst case scenarios would be too much flow, which means damaging your hydraulic motor, or too little flow, which means you might only throw the snow 8 to 12 feet.
The bottom line is, whether you buy locally or online, new or used, do your research and get the right snow thrower attachment for your particular skid steer. If your snow blower attachment doesn’t work how and when you want it to, you may as well shovel the snow yourself.
