    Oh the 2410 the bobcat the worst machine bobcat ever made.And the one that most often gets in the hands of people that don't use them much but I worked for bobcat when that machine was new and never acutely sold one but donated them to veriuos Places for landscaping like schools and university and places of worship it used to be a joke at our dealer if you want a bobcat but you only are going to use a few times a month for 3-6 hrs get a 2410 or 116 excavator we donated them to they where leftovers off machine once droped from the bobcat line and where never sold

    @hiluxman, I personally felt your post on this thread was quite rude and unwarranted. Have you ever heard the old axiom: "If you don't have anything nice to say, keep your trap shut?"?
    TomG, your machine is truly an AwEsOmE piece of gear! Your informative postings complete with toe-curling photos and videos have been the final push that I needed in obtaining a 2410 of my own here locally. She is being completely reworked & restored at present. Look forward to posting pics and video of my own soon. Semper Fidelis!
    p.s. mine has a 3-point setup on the rear of the unit. Ever heard of this revision, or do you think it a custom modification?

    Bobcat articulated 2410

    No sir, I don't... yet. As stated in the base posting, she has a three point setup on the rear versus the lower rear cover with the large rear counter weight(s) that most other 2410 units that I've researched have shown. Not sure if the three point system was original to this unit or a custom modification. Also unsure of whether she'll be able to do the backhoe setup with this three point config. Really excited though about being able to use, and of course start obtaining, three point attachments which are plentiful and comparatively speaking, reasonably priced. Brian

    Looks like a more than decent little piece of equipment. Keep the photos and videos coming please, Mr. TomG.

    I'm very curious and interested to see what happens when someone acquires a backhoe rear end for one.

    I tip my hat fellas. Looks like a good all around machine. Even the Cat small loaders are fairly rare and they are still in production. Ya'll enjoy them, I'm sure I would. I really like the idea of a three point. Like my grandpa always say's "Looks handier than a shirt pocket".

    I just picked up the backhoe attachment with the extendahoe. Now I just need to find a 2410 to go with it. The machines on this thread look amazing. IMG_0221.jpg IMG_0226.jpg

    I know of two 1991 Bobcat 2410's for sale right now. Both are EROP with heat. One is the rear 3-pt PTO model and is currently in complete restore/retrofit, original engine rebuilt with only two hours on it, NOT yet listed. The other is listed in NH, rear standard backhoe model, but approx. 3600 hours on machine. Both are around $15K. Gunny

    If you don't mind my asking, what did you give for this extend-a-HOe attachment? Private message is fine... Gunny :cool:
    p.s. we have a lot of 2410 info over on the TBN forum site also...

    The price is right, but it has an OROP cab... At my age, if it isn't an EROP, I ain't interested! Gunny :cool2

    I paid $2450.00 for the extendahoe, figured if I don't find a 2410 it could be attached to something else easy enough. It looks like a good quality piece.

    I love this machine! There was one for sale in my area a year or so ago and I'm kicking myself for not following through with it. I bought a couple other machines for about the same money they were asking for. In the long run I think this would have been a better choice.....

    Cheers heaps GySgtAttack! That looks like it would be an extremely handy little machine to have around.

    So when you hook them up is it a fairly simple process of just bolting them on and hooking up the hoses? or do you need to do a bunch of other stuff as well?

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you all I was away for christmas this year:)

    Are you sure you don't want to sell that nice hoe to a guy that already has a 2410?
