    It appears to have gone from a 140BLC to just a 140B as the letters L&C have disappeared.

    they might want more for it if you point out it's a long carriage :hammerhead: its amazing how decals get changed on equipment i know a construction company running around here with a cat 320 with 330 decals on it so he can charge more for the job, and its obvious he changed them that's the worse part.

    Well The machine finally arrived at the dealer today, I couldnt help but ride by and touch it :laugh::laugh:

    Jeff, you were right it does have the hour meter on the left said and it did say 77 hours. there's also a sticker on it saying the meter was replaced a 1446 hours so its still around the 1500 hour mark.

    few pictures, other then a new rear door and some touch up paint I'm happy with it.







    and one for the asv boys... im glad ya'll like them LOL!

    Congrats Dirtman I like that 140, I think you were better off waiting then buy the original one you started this thread with.

    When do you get to put it to work?

    may as well take her home and paint her up chris..you know your keeping it! haha

    i really love those ASC buckets and thumbs, the one of your bigger volvo was the first I ever had seen

    looks like some georgia clay on the terex...all the way up in NC haha

    Talus and JP..you think that they could have repainted a yellow 70 to keep up with times? interior looks odd for the new style too..thought they were all black or dark gray inside....?

    I don't think it was repainted from yellow, it has the look off the new model and on the in cab picture you can see a terex serial plate.
