    No personal experience, but $5k doesn't seem bad based on the asking prices listed here: CASE 1840, Used CASE 1840, CASE 1840 For Sale At MachineryTrader.com - Page 1

    With all used machines, you need to do your best assesment and balance the thought of possible repairs that WILL come up with the price paid. Case builds a nice machine. I think it has a little Cummins in them (my old 1845c had) I have a 30k generator with the same engine and it has close to 9000hrs on it. The components that might be coming up with issues (that you can't see) are the drive motors, main pumps, drive chains, and the engine esp. the fuel sys. (injectors and pump) All of these things are rebuildable and shouldn't break the bank, just be aware that's what might be coming. Remember to use it and not abuse it at that age. Have fun!
