Hello. I have been lurking around for a while and thought it was time to come out of the shed! Story is I am a homeowner looking for a used skid for personal use and maybe a little side work to help recoup some of my investment. I am interested in a 1994 case 1840. I am cautious as this unit has only 425 hrs orig, was owned by a farmer. Second owner says it has original paint and needs nothing. Based on web searching and opinions from the experienced on this site it is way overpriced at 15,000 US including 16ft trailer (9000lb?). It looks minty, but overpriced. Everyone seems to know someone who bought one for a song, but I haven't found much for much less money or in decent condition with under 1500 hrs. I don't intend to offer that much, should I go in a different direction with my choice? Any opinions on whether this unit would be suitable for attachments such as a backhoe or grapple? Would it have hi flow? Thanks and my next post will be shorter! Maybe?
