    Absolutely not!
    Run away from that machine. 2600 hours are way to many. Just go take 10k into the dealer as your down payment and buy a new one.

    Hi P. thanks for quick comment. So 2600+ hrs on this Kubota engine is pretty the end of life?

    I disagree, the price could be entirely reasonable. Engine life will depend on the owner's maintenance.

    I know of a Boxer 532 with 2500 hours on it for ~$9500. New they list for just under $27k and can be had for just over $22k.

    It's 2600 hours. Don't care if the oil was changed every day. That engine has been run for a long time. What else needs to be fixed?

    5 grand for it maybe. Those are the highest hours I have even seen on a mini.

    I bought a ditch witch sk755 brand new, money well spent.

    A Kubota diesel is different than a Kohler gasser. I've seen economy gas minis with more hours. One Thomas 25G with mid 2k hours rolled and caught on fire. Insurance payout was just under $8k after the deductible.

    I sort of agree with P.'s statement. I've been trying to find a sk650 machine with similar hours, for comparison purpose, just couldn't find it?! All of the sk650 on the market are all below 1000 hrs.
