I bought this backhoe for $2000.00. It ran, but that was about all. This is not going to be restored, it will be used! First fixed the brakes (were rusted), 2 new batteries. all new coolant hoses, replaced t-stat and gasket, rewired glow plugs, changed transmission/hydro oil, oil, filter, and fuel filters, drained oil from backhoe front bucket.
They want a review; I would say if they make the new ones last like this old girl that now runs and digs like a new one they would be putting themselves out of selling new ones. The color maybe rust but she will work right beside the red-green-orange-and yellow.
