Just went and saw the machine in person. It's sitting in a repo yard in bridge view. Owner couldn't pay his mechanic's bills. It's not as bad as what I thought. For 20,000 hours the engine doesn't seem tired at all.

Big girls need lovin' too. I kid I kid.

But Seriously, Most 300+ sized machines that actually work up here live 15,000+ hour lives. They get taken care of though, and run alot better then most machines at 7,000 hours. And I don't mean oil changes, the engines get upgraded/rebuilt, booms are repinned, cabs are refurnised. The company I used to work for have a 17,000 hour 330 , 13,000 320, as well as new 330's,345's etc. If the irons still running and making money why scrap it. New machines are expensive, any buying another used one you're taking a chance. It makes sense to me, unless you're a highballing site prep or earth works company that can afford to replace everything once it his 5,500 hours. It's a decent way of business. Plus there are enough Cat excavators especially in scrap yards, that parts can be less expensive.
