Depends on what you are after. Most parts are common, but a few are made only by Bobcat.

Some dealers sell their parts for less then others. If I have a long list I often get a quote on each part # from more then one dealer.
Also engine parts, try your local auto parts or go straight to the manufacturer of your engine.
Many small parts are common to alot of different machines and can be sourced anywhere. Bobcat especially in the early years did not build “their own“ of something that already existed somewhere else. But the bigger they get the more they can do this.
Same with hydraulic pumps and motors.
Of course some thing only are available from the equipment mfg.

As for those pins we made our own out of a piece of hydraulic cylinder shaft. Vary tough material. You have to grind into it 1/8 to 3/16” deep where you want to drill the bolt hole to hold the pin in. The outside is way to hard to drill. The original pins are not that tough, they can be filed. We did every pin is the loader eith these except the bottom of the quick attach as the 553 used a tapered pin there. Been 2 year now and no problems.

If you take Ken's advise and use chrome bar, make sure you get the induction hardened stuff, not the one that is just hard chromed. The hard chrome is only a few microns thick and has a very soft core, the induction hardened stuff on the other hand is like cutting diamond! Its only say 1/8” thick then its soft.
