    Not a bad price but boy its been beat up quite abit. That would be a machine you would want to go look in person your really taking a chance buying that machine just from the pictures.

    I think it was a steal. I have seen worse with more hours go for more.

    Read the fine print, Oil pressure light comes on and engine starts hard and runs rough, If your a mechanic and have access to parts it would be A o.k. deal

    My guess which might be a little low, but with no cab I would guess about 45K. Which if that is true translates into about $31.00 an hour. Take a moment to process that. Imagine buying a machine for 45K then 1100 hours later sell it for 10K! Part of that is likely because the economy sucks, and the rest is due to it being a CAT MTL. Honestly if you buy one these machines new at this point, you have too much money or your not watching the market. :weightlifter:

    I never noticed it doesn't have a cab yep that knocks some money off. Not a machine that you can use all year round.

    You can, it's just not enjoyable. I never liked running skid steers in the rain. It always accumulates on the glass skylight and if you hit a bump it'll end up in your lap. A real joy.
