Bobcat 953 Review


The Bobcat 953 is not a particularly common loader. It would appear that finding a good one is not easy at all. I have also come across users who are having trouble locating certain parts. Before you commit to a purchase, it is in your best interest to investigate various options, if at all possible. The Bobcat 953 is good at lifting and pushing. If you can't buy a Bobcat s300, it's a good option. If you want 2 optional speeds, check out the Bobcat 963.
