    Like hell it was involved in aluminum smelting/manufacturing process, that was a fertilizer machine, everything is shot on it, scrap it. It's a dead give away if the machine needs a complete hydraulic rebuild.

    hahaha wow that doesnt need a little work it needs alot of work!! bull$#it i would take that thing on a job.. haha you know whats funny that machine is coming from the same enviroment that my dads first bobcat did, bobcat 730, it was in horrible shape.. he had to bend that cage back in to shape. make a totally new wiring harness, put a new motor in it and bought a bucket.. he put 2,000 hours on it until the pins and bushings on the bucket curl got so wore out the bucket fell off.. haha he knew the guy that bought it and he put another 2000 hours on it until the motor blew... that is 10,000 hours on a skidsteer that no one was sure what year it was..

    By the time you got it running it would be the same price as a slightly used machine in perfect running condition. Starting at $6,000? Are they crazy or is that thing in china and that is 6,000 ying......:laugh:

    Why would somebody even list that its scrap :dizzy:

    Somebody stupid will buy it thinking they are going to save money buying that and rebuilding it.

    Dumping money into a dead horse.

    I would be embarrased to say i owned or even treated a machine as bad as that 190 has been treated.. whoever owns those two loaders just needs to scrap them both and the people who own them wouldnt be wasting there time..
