buying a wheel skid case 410

2005 case 410 ~2000 hours. hand controls, looks like manual attach.

are these case skids pretty reliable? my operator wants a pt50 terex but that I feel thats out of budget for this month.

any known problems with the 410?
aside from testing it and, looking at tires, looking at pivot pin sloppiness is there anything else to look at ?

I'd check over the engine service record really well. That 2.2L engine had massive head gasket issues. It wasn't uncommon to see three or four gasket failures.

I rented a Series 3 410 last week to spread material in a basement. It had pilot controls (ISO, that sucked). I can say that the machine in the picture has way too much bucket on it. I have not ran a skid steer this small in probably 12 years, may be longer than that. Overall, kept to light duty type work it would likely fine. It has no turbo and at about 5K feet it was noticeable. I would put 12X16.5 tires on it, even if you give up a little compactness. Also it could use some counter weight. Lift power was very good, but its too light in the asss to take advantage of that. Break out was marginal. If the machine has 2000 ours on it, I would say they have the updated head gasket design. Its hard to keep machines this size in perspective if you don't spend a lot of time on them. Having not run anything under 85 hp in over a decade its easy to call it underpowered, but it had lift hooks on it and it was easy to crane the machine where I needed it with a 160 sized excavator so I cant bitchh too much.
