Went to p/u repo CT322 Friday and this is what I found. They have dug a big ditch around it.

can you explain more? did they take the tracks off of it so you couldnt take it? why is the ac taken off? i take it that it still runs?

i would get a crane or a wrecker and just pull it across. or better yet just run a 332 over to it and lift it up and out of there!!!!!

when you know the bank is after it they took what they could off and probably sold it on ebay or something...it didn't matter to them, it wasn't their machine

How did you happen to find it? That would seem like it would have a criminal component to it. They vandalized and/or stripped a machine that was not theirs to do so. That comes off of the bottom line. It ends up costing everyone because it increases the price of all the Deere products that you buy.


When I was High School in North Dakota, family farms were folding up and being sold at high rate of speed. A farmer who was about to have his equipment taken and his farm sold, parked his 4X4 tractor and huge cultivator in front of his shop, folded the wings down and welded them in place. Then spent days in his big shop welding all of his equipment together. Hard to take his equipment when it was all welded together.

sell the machine to me and i will keep it around for spare parts!!!

if it was a case or a cat i may not have a tear rolling down my cheak dut that is just a sad thing to see. poor machine

I wonder how much it would cost to repair? course you would almost have to take it down to the frame to see what else was wrong with it... I would take any thing right now for equipment... but not so sure about my dad he is set on BOBCAT but dang i bet you could get a deal on that thing.

That is something else. I know times are tough but that is just ridiculous. I mean getting your machine re-poed is a bad deal for everyone involved but that is just rubbing salt in the wound. They just took a civil case and added a criminal case to go along with it. JDSKIDSTEER keep us posted as to how that turns out. Where was that machine located?

It's just wrong no matter what brand, even if it was a Volvo, Dawoo or what ever.

Big house builder that went under. Not necessarily just because of economy, but because of his head man that ran the dirt crew. I better not say to much. Deere may want to file criminal charges. I think I can take a CT332 and make a path close to it and pull it to where a roll back can get it. Deere will auction off to Deere dealers and charge back the rest to our reserve account. We will take a bath on this one. Found the other one. I think I crank it, but it is tore up pretty bad itself.

What do they per pound at the scrap yard?

There was a case of a repo of a Hummer the repo company asked one of the tow companies to go get it. Tow truck gets there the thing is stripped bald even the seats are gone. The repo company told the tow truck operator the vehical is running and easy to move. The Hummer ended up going to the scrap yard.

The price of scrap is around 200-240 dollars a ton that sripped skid must weigh atleast 2 tons so about 400 dollars in scrap.

Another repo in the area the new machines are so bashed up because the owners didn't care they are heading for Ritchie Bros.

Looks like he might have started to part it out to maybe keep the other machine that you are going to pickup running.I noticed that the tubo had tape over it like he didn't want it to be complete junk.

Robbed tracks off this one to put on the other machin.Left it out on jobsite to keep it away from you and others,hoping to turn things around.In the mean time that kids broke the windows out and the scrap metal junkys got the radaitor and a/c condenser.

Things never got better and here you have what you see now.It would have been in his better interest to just have let the machine go back,but desperate people do desperate things sometimes :usflag:

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Human nature keeps us holding on instead of cutting our losses short. JDSkid, when you find out scrap prices in your area, please post.....also, what is the dry weight of that machine? Some dirt workers in other states are buying tier 1 equipment for under dry weight scrap price......with resale what it is, that skid is a prime candidate for the scrap yard, unless the powers that be decide it is worth fixing so they can go after the contractors assets.......keep us posted on that if you would please.

trust me it is not worth fixing.....i am sure there is a pretty hefty note still on that unit....repos on cce is never a win situation for the next buyer...i had to repo a dozen or so machines when i was at deere, and as a dealership we may have bought one of them, low houred mini ex...i don't care what undercarriage costs are for each brand, that machine will not be ready to work for less than 9-10k.....labor costs are high for sales guys too.... I am my service dept. biggest customer, between new sales, rental and trade in machines......i am so glad i don't have to do repo's anymore, Cat finance likes to keep us on the outside of those deals.

07-19-2008, 11:50 PM
Do you as saleman or someone else keep track of finaniced machine where they are located ,lets say if customer gets behind on their payments ,because of this situration?

With the weeds growning up on the machine as they are it has had to be setting there sometime.I realize you have better time to spend then tracking machine especially if your making your money on sales.

At least assign someone to check on machines once in awhile before they get into this shape.I know easier said then done.Right!:usflag:

07-20-2008, 12:10 AM
we are aware of who is behind not matter who you work for, but some finance companies want salesman to chase after it vs hiring it out......i have had other customers go repo units for the finance group, most of the time they keep us out of it...when i worked for deere, i always called the sheriff for some extra eyes on the property.

I didn't realize that even Deere was that ugly under the cabs just like Bobcat!

Grab a 12 ton excavator and yank it across and onto a flat deck, crack the fittings on the loader and chain 'er down and go!

Gravel Rat

I imagine there is still lots of good parts left on the machine.

Construct'O
07-20-2008, 08:53 PM
The missing parts would be the big expense.But as far as the labor to fix it,looked to be a fairly easy fix just bolts missing parts back on.If there wasn't unseeable damages.

Just setting the cab back down would surprise you what it work look like.

I would wether try fixing this one then a burnt one.:dancing:

The missing radiator and oil cooler and a/c stuff would be the hardest.The window replacement and tracks would be easy.

Looks like a winter project for someone up north.Just need to get it out of those swamps where it is.:):usflag:

And if that were a Bobcat, I would just dig a hole next to it, flip it in there, pee on it and bury it, no last rights, just bury the damn thing.

If that was in Vancouver you would see parts of that machine being carried in shopping carts to the scrap dealers :laugh:

and if it was a cat just shoot it and see if it would jump six feet in the air and officially die like a real kitty cat..

The missing final drive is the most expensive part to replace I see.
If I caught somebody doing that I would bury them with the machine too.

I think you may be right, but it is still wrong. The other machine is rough, and cab door and windows destroyed. They tried using these machines like 655c's. They never thought twice about running them on asphalt. I actually saw one berried to the bottom of the cab in mud. I heard they knocked the door out when they reached in to pull it out with an excavator.

KSS......It looks like it may make 102 today.109 heat index. My kind of weather.

The bank or JD credit has the right to go after the owner for the balance of the loan. So, if they sell it or auction it off and only get a grand, the owner could/will get sued for the rest of the loan. Some people don't understand this.:hammerhead:

I picked up the one that ran today. I had to jump it off. I went back to the subdivision where the other loader is and had a scavanger hunt. I found a bunch of goodies. Here is 3 angles of the mother load so you get an idea of what I found. Still got to find the bucket.

And to think they have customers... The public will hire the cheapest guy many times and this is the class of people they are letting on their property, in their homes, near their kids, etc.. Fly by night types... Those type of people are trash and what's wrong with the world. They don't pay their bills, don't take care of anything, don't ever have insurance, and expect something for nothing not caring who they hurt in the process.

You'll probably end up doing a treasure hunt, parts are located in different parts of the USA and you get clues as to where the locations are!

Sounds like a good Hollywood movie plot, or at least the makings of a Friday night soft Core porn movie. :laugh:

I would go as far as 76", but 84 would be pushing it. Not knocking Bobcat, just being realistic.
