Here's a machine that needs work but you can get it for a seriously good deal.

This thing is in bad shape and check the starting bid out after you read the description. Why would you even buy this?

Like hell it was involved in aluminum smelting/manufacturing process, that was a fertilizer machine, everything is shot on it, scrap it. It's a dead give away if the machine needs a complete hydraulic rebuild.

hahaha wow that doesnt need a little work it needs alot of work!! bull$#it i would take that thing on a job.. haha you know whats funny that machine is coming from the same enviroment that my dads first bobcat did, bobcat 730, it was in horrible shape.. he had to bend that cage back in to shape. make a totally new wiring harness, put a new motor in it and bought a bucket.. he put 2,000 hours on it until the pins and bushings on the bucket curl got so wore out the bucket fell off.. haha he knew the guy that bought it and he put another 2000 hours on it until the motor blew... that is 10,000 hours on a skidsteer that no one was sure what year it was..

By the time you got it running it would be the same price as a slightly used machine in perfect running condition. Starting at $6,000? Are they crazy or is that thing in china and that is 6,000 ying......:laugh:

Why would somebody even list that its scrap :dizzy:

Somebody stupid will buy it thinking they are going to save money buying that and rebuilding it.

Dumping money into a dead horse.

I would be embarrased to say i owned or even treated a machine as bad as that 190 has been treated.. whoever owns those two loaders just needs to scrap them both and the people who own them wouldnt be wasting there time..

Now that think about it Jr. I think you yourself picked the shovel based on your own comments of the 420CT, which were favorable. You don't want me to cut and paste your own comments do you Jr.? You need to give yourself a rest Jr. not only are you going blind but your damaging your memory.:hammerhead:

hahahahahahahahaha! I think i would go with the shovel to if i had to run it for a long time.. but if i was pushing alot of dirt i would go with the 190.. I would like to run a larger case ctl the 420 kinda seemed under powered but we were running it in nothing but sticky deep mud with alots of rock and it was bottoming it out but it was still a nice machine because of the joysticks..

The Series 3 machines are about 20 hp higher than the last series. So they may have been underpowered. Adding 20 hp is pretty significant.

I am not sure what series it was but it was pretty new it only had 400 hours on it.. how do you tell the difference?

The newest version says "Series 3" on them. Cabs are shaped different. The control layout is different, there also are small frame changes, you would likely not pickup on unless you were real familiar with them.

Asking $2900, that's just the scrap value in weight alone, pull the machine apart and get the aluminum and brass out of the pumps and you might see more. It's not worth rebuilding, the seller answered the question of how the fire was put out, he says it burnt itself out, so there's really nothing left to rebuild. :laugh:

oh.. I didnt notice if it had series 3 or not.. the guy at neff said it doesnt get rented out much so it might be a series 2
