200 would be a better fit for sure. I agree finding a machine set up right will save big $$$ but some times you just have to step up to the counter right? You couldn't give me ANY excavator with 12,000 hours no way wouldn't even consider it. My dads 200 has 7500 and never had a problem so I feel fine with a 2,000 hour machine. I'm not saying his won't reach 12k or more but I wana start with something lower. Now is the time to buy. That was a 190,000 machine a few years ago.

Door panels can be replaced, that's not a big deal but you kinda have to wonder how well the machine was cared for if the sheet metal is beat after 2,XXX hours. I myself would take a real good look and have some fluid sampling done on that machine if I was looking to buy. For the record, that is a dash 7 hoe.

The general condition of the machine looks poor. No hyd. thumb and if you need plumbing and a spoil thats 7K right there. You can find better deals for a much better excavator. The Komatsu dealer here emailed me yesterday on a dash 7 160 with 1800 hours thumb, coupler 05 model for 66K- picture looked good. CASE has an 06 210 with 2000 hours thumb no coupler for 65K-this machine looks like new. Excavator values are in the toilet, especially 160 sized machines. Good time to buy if you have the work for them.

Yup, the Dash 7 series really bog big time, this one might be a Dash 7, listen as the operator pulls the boom up with the slightest movement:

Oh and I just got home 10 minutes ago, no way was I going to race through traffic to the RB Auction.

The 138 in the video isn't bogging, that's pump whine, not the motor. And that's a dash 8 as well, has the camera above the counterweight. The 138-8 I've run did the same thing, just a pump whine. The dash 8's don't bog like the 7's do, that's been my experience anyway. The only dash 7's I've run that didn't seem underpowered were the 400's. I hadn't run a dash 7 for a while until I spent a couple days in one of our 300-7's and man, the biggest killer on the bogging is while crowding.

Sops, any 621 after '96 is the ticket.
