This Bobcat is for sale locally and the owner doesn't know the model # or have any info on it.  Any help is appreciated as I need something to rob the hydrostatic drive and hydraulics off of.

I try to stay away from sales when the place in the background looks like a scene from a horror movie. Looks like a place where equipment goes to die.

That reminds me of my Toro 322D.

I thought the background looked pretty cool.  having worked in a low-end junkyard it reminded me of that.  good times breaking up old junk in my misspent youth.

 

can't help with the bobat but it looks like a good donor if the stuff you need works... then the machine would make some cool "yard art" ... although old bobcat fans might get upset??..dunno...

 

quick look online may be a "bobcat" model made ransomes.  t18b?  also made them for toro?  looks like they came with mits 3cyl, onan, briggs twin?  good luck...

Ransomes is the manufacturer.  Bobcat is the model.  They made many different models of the "Bobcat", even ZTs.  I have a buddy that has a diesel one like that.

I got this pic off the interwebs...

That looks like the same mower, just a newer color scheme.  The owner says it has a 2 cylinder and he thinks its an 18hp, now I have to see what I can get it for.  I hate parting out a good complete anything but sometimes projects call.

So I picked up the mower yesterday, it is a Bob-Cat T18B with a Briggs opposed 18hp twin.  Runs and drives great, doesn't have hydraulic steering but it will do what I need it to.  I might be dropping the Kubota 3 cyl diesel in it.  Anyone have an owners manual for this?  I contacted the factory but I haven't heard back from them.
