    I found it thru a friend of a friend and made an offer of $6,500 (to include a brand new set of tire chains for the driver wheels) and 10 month payments of $650 (no interest).

    Thanx for the input ! With a 1.5 CY loader bucket it must have been designed with good hydraulics. From what I've seen the machine, once the chaings are installed, it should be capable of moving dirt 'almost' as well as a D-4 cat.
