Excellent Value Posted by Charles Helleloid on 04/06/2013

It was very used when I bought it and pivot points that had no grease fittings on FEL and backhoe were very loose. The ones with grease fittings were better but still worn. Tach hadn't worked for at least the prior owner and looked like it may have been at 3700 hours when smashed. It leaked engine oil badly but ran okay.

I fixed rear seal on motor, put in new tach, and replaced broken zerks and installed an engine heater. It sits outside, but does get regular oil changes and greasing. It has over 1000 hrs on new tach. It has been worked very hard moving rock, gravel, wood, and snow. It looks terrible and works well. It doesn't appear any more worn out now than when I got it.
