    john deere 2030, Case 580CK backhoe

    Default Got a new(to me) case 580CK Case, old with potential.

    Bought a few weeks ago an old 1971 Case backhoe. It was very dirty and broken window, wires for lights all cut or disconnected. Started by cleaning it and removed the broken window , will bring it to an autoglass shop this week for replacement. Some old hoses, but all seem good.
    Next is to repair all the light wiring and cleaning the motor. Will check all the fuid and replace if needed.
    It was in operation, just a couple of months ago. I have used the digger for a couple of hours and everything worked well until a leak occurred in the hydrolic of the backhoe. Just a weld needed, nothing major.
    Paid 2500. $, so I cant go wrong. Well I think so.Lol

    If you can keep her running that is a great bargain. Looks good too!

    Great machine at an even better price! Even if you have to work on it a little, you still got a great deal.

    Looks like a good buy. You can trade a little work for the savings, hope it works out for you.

    Thank you guys for your comments, I cant wait to get it dirty, after I get the hydrolic pipe welded.
    It was very dirty and rusted when I got her.
    Here a pic before the paint.

    Did you do the paint job yourself or have it hired out?
    I am fixing up my dad's old International Harvester 3616 backhoe and it needs a paint job...
    How much paint and prep did it take?

    Painted it myself with a mix of spray cans and a good brush for around the windows where I did not want any paint on the black rubber around them. Alot of cleaning before, as there was a lot of old grease accumulated, removed
    all the rust with a grinder and steel wheel. I had to throw out a couple of pairs of jeans and tee-shirts, as the wife did not want them in the washer.lol
