Anybody care to figure the depreciation per hour on this 257B. For those not signed up on Iron Planet it is an 05 257B, with 1100 hours sold for 10K. Decent shape.

Not a bad price but boy its been beat up quite abit. That would be a machine you would want to go look in person your really taking a chance buying that machine just from the pictures.

I think it was a steal. I have seen worse with more hours go for more.

Read the fine print, Oil pressure light comes on and engine starts hard and runs rough, If your a mechanic and have access to parts it would be A o.k. deal

So what does that machine go for new? Or maybe we don't want to figure this out.;):)

My guess which might be a little low, but with no cab I would guess about 45K. Which if that is true translates into about $31.00 an hour. Take a moment to process that. Imagine buying a machine for 45K then 1100 hours later sell it for 10K! Part of that is likely because the economy sucks, and the rest is due to it being a CAT MTL. Honestly if you buy one these machines new at this point, you have too much money or your not watching the market. :weightlifter:

I never noticed it doesn't have a cab yep that knocks some money off. Not a machine that you can use all year round.

You can, it's just not enjoyable. I never liked running skid steers in the rain. It always accumulates on the glass skylight and if you hit a bump it'll end up in your lap. A real joy.

What do you think about all the Gehl CTL60 units that are going to be auctioned off next week? Based on what similar units sold last week, the '07 should go for ~$15-$16K, and the older ones for few thousands less...

Basically the same as a Tak, even if you figure on spending some in repairs I would think it is a good buy. Have heard the Gehls don't have as good of resale compared to Tak or Mustang.

Which is fine with me... If I can buy a barely used unit for under $15K, I'm not too concerned with resale :)

I would have to agree with you. I wonder if the resale for these track machines will get better?

When the economy picks up so will the resale prices. 2 year old CTL with low hours should bring from $20 to 25K..RB had there October in Fl. There were steals and people paying way to much for worn out CTL's..

The CTL/MTL values have been off for sometime, even before the economy went South.

Well it has some blow by, bucket pins worn, hard starting, sounds like a good used rental machine... lol
I love a cat motor when everything is good but they are too expensive to fix:hammerhead:

Well, that's kinda true. Technically, it's a Perkapillar, Perkins motor with Cat components. I've found parts to be reasonable, not cheap, but not gouging on these machines. However, don't know if I'd gamble on that machine, though.

An open cab brand new will run around 32k to 35k.
The tracks will need replacing at around 700 to 1000 hours.
This 2 would be a good ones to bid on.
Tracks will run about 4k parts only.
That factored in if these machines will go for 17k or less and you do not mind the open cab then they will be good deals.
