Today while visiting one of our venders for a project at work I ran across this.

JD Skidder.jpg


The owner said he is not sure if it runs or not as he just parked it in this warehouse years ago. He purchased a newer, modern skid steer and just parked this one. I did not talk about purchasing it but am fairly confident I could get it at a reasonable price.

My question is would this be a fun restoration project? I am not even sure the model although it looks like a 170. I think it is complete and clean for an old skidder. Any thoughts?

doesnt look to rough and being inside is priceless when it comes to dealing with rusty things, id see if you can turn the engine over by hand and see if its stuck before i got too deep in it
