I basically bought it so I could clear the snow off the drive and road. At the time we had my wife's mother living with us and we never knew when we'd have to get her to a doctor.
I paid $3,200.00 for it, the end loader and the back blade. It came with a fairly new set of chains too.
It has some electrical problems, and the hyd. pump on the end-loader needs rebuilt. But it does everything I have asked of it.
I was told it had sat for many years, and I think that it did because the fuel tank is full of rust. It starts easily if I keep the battery charged. I have to set the charge manual as the regulator has issues at times too.
