Get the machine jacked up, either with a jack or using tyhe bucket and loader arms, and grab each roller and check for play. This indicates the bearings are shot and at least for my machine (rc100) each roller assembly is like 400 bucks.

I agree. Way too much money for a machine that small.

No hours are listed
Like said Ck the rollers. If you can Ck the oil in the planetaries
Raise the cab and Ck the belly
If it's got a turbo, look at the compressor wheel for play and wear

Look at drive lugs where they join the tracks-any sign of cracks here means the lugs could start tearing out. Motor was prone on early models to blow head gaskets. Watch for any signs of overheating. Not the best motor ever put in a skid steer, mine has been fine, but there are a lot of horror stories out there on this site and others. These are a very productive machine if used in the context it was designed for. Make sure the 2 speed works, I have been through 2 latching relays for the 2speed.
