Cat E70b value?

Im a heavy equipment junky. There is a pile driving company the next block over from my shop. I stopped over this morning to pick up some old tires. And the owner asked if i would be interested in this old E70b. He started it up and moved it. Yea it needs work. But for the price i figure i cant go wrong. Its worth more than that in scrap value. He offered it to me for $1500.00. Yep thts correct. Could this be moved on a dual tandem gooseneck?

RitchieSpecs has it at 15256# or 7.6 T. I don't know where scrap is, but you can always look back to that. On a 20,000# goose neck you'll be over, not to mention it might be sketchy loading. Short trips maybe... Maybe look at RB for suggestions as to what to look at in an ex. It may be more profitable to part out too if it doesn't work out.

$1500 is right about scrap value at least in my neck of the woods. I'd grab it if you have the money. Toss it on ebay...double or triple your money.

Offer him $1000 cash , he wont turn it down. Then find a dealer who has one of those skid steers you want and see what he will give you for trade in value. You would be suprised what some dealers will do for a sale...
