    Case 1818 skid steer. What’s it worth thread?

    My soon to be FIL runs a water district and is a gvt employee. He’s got a bunch of equipment for sale for the district to get rid of crap they don’t use anymore. 1979 Cat D-3 dozer, 2001 JohnDeere 5105 4x4 diesel tractor, dual wheel goose neck to pull them on. All meticulously maintained cuz it’s government stuff.

    Ive always wanted a little skid steer and one of the pieces up for bid is a case 1818 skid steer. 18 hp gas engine. Seems tiny. Are they useful at all or just little pieces of shit? Brand new engine a couple years ago. I can go drive it if I want to. Looks like it’s 4 ft wide.

    Sealed bid auction that no one knows about. What would you bid? I’d kinda like to have the 50 hp JD with the loader but FIL says he doesn’t like it. Says it’s to easy to tip over. Don’t have a lot of money to part with cuz I just built a new race car. Flame on.

    What's the tipping capacity of the skid?

    I'd probably pass and hold for something bigger

      Coming from a public utility background the sealed bid thing can be fucked.


      If anyone in the office is interested or their other half is you won't get it.

      It's only sealed to the public. unless they are going to open the envelopes at the board meeting don't bother.

          Better than a shovel but you won’t dig a basement with it.

          Seen them used mostly in cattle or hog barns with cement floor pushing poo because small and maneuverable through gates.

          How many hours?

                I would toss a lowball bid on everything. 15-2000 on everything but the dozer 55-6000 on dozer. If you get it great if not oh well. Dozer you should be able to peddle for 12-15,000 all day in a hurry, 15-20,000 if your not.

                tractor skidsteer trailer, hard to say without seeing it but you should be able to flip them for 4-5,000.

                do it right and you could get a free skidsteer with some extra walking around money.

                Day of bid opening ask your fil how many bids showed up. Bid accordingly. Don’t bid even numbers toss a $35 on top of yours to beat a tie.

                        personally, after owning a Bobcat 773 and now a Deere 317.... i'd stay far away from the short wheelbase models if there are any a) heavy loads or b) non-flat-ground involved...

                            Everything is all pretty clean, stored inside most the time. I’ll throw some low ball bids on some things. Auction close 8/11/20 and the bids are opened in front of the board.

                              near Cortez. I’ll ask the FIL and see if he cares, I don’t want to touch it/move it.
