Archive: Once upon a time, I owned a Bobcat 743 #TBT

Posted By on December 5, 2019

While searching for a photo of an accident when a helicopter landed in our backyard, I ran across a photo of one of the “tools” I miss the most: a Bobcat 743 purchased RichCBobcat743_2007when we built our house back in 1995-96. I did the same thing with a more powerful tractor besides our John Deere 330 lawn mower when we moved from Aurora to Hudson, Ohio, but instead of a skid steer, it was an old Ford 800 series front end loader with a PTO-driven Woods finish mower on the rear.

We kept the Bobcat for a variety of projects, including snow removal and with forks as a poor man’s warehouse forklift when Brenda helped start the first online Internet Pharmacy fulfillment facility here in West Chester, Ohio (originally which eventually became Fun times … and also miss our Tootsie  (photos in her energetic Australian Cattle Dog Blue Heeler days).
