Good looking machine that sure would look sweet sitting out there with your volvo but a couple issues I see are the rubber pads and the manual thumb. But its already plumbed for aux hydraulics so it shoudn't be to hard to add a hydraulic thumb and valves so you can switch between thumb and tilt bucket which I think after you use a couple times with as much grading as you do with the buckets you'll wonder how you ever got along with out it LOL

They want $45,000 for its right now.

I was also wondering about the pads. can't you take the rubber pads off and it still be the same are a regular track or are they build just for that style setup?

Its already plumbed for a thumb and quick coupler!

I think $45,000 is pretty good you could probly get it for less too, CASH IS KING. But I wont hesitate at all to get it for $45.

yeah the pads just bolt on for road work, takes about 2 hours to do a full set with an air impact gun, handy to do work for utilities and councils etc, another string to your bow.

looks a nice machine, bet it had one operator as its to tidy for to have been anyone jumping in. i'd buy it, we dont have many thumbs over here but the grading buckets are about £3000 and we have a geith on our older machine great hitches and buckets.

and its going to look nice with 2 volvos on the same job haha, generally share filters etc as well so makes spares alot easier.

the angle bucket looks unused and be very handy for grading ponds etc

It's a steal, county or Municipal owned machines are kept up very well with service intervals and repairs, and it's got the pin on style quick change, so you can flip that tilt bucket around, always nice to have that style.
