    I think they worded it confusingly, I think they mean it goes fine, since its a crawler, thats just a term they used for forward motion, since it says starts, runs, and crawls..maybe not who knows. Curent bid is $14,000 tho, thats alot for a broke one.

    That really is strange about the "total loss". Could it be a recovered, stolen unit, that insurance paid a total losss to the original owner? could it have been under water, and insurance does not want to deal with fixing it?
    I sure would want a clear explanation of the reason for that wording before buying it.

    I would say the recovered, stolen unit is most likely since insurance would have paid out for a total loss, and this would be to recover anything they can get.

    Ditto. Could have a lot wrong, electronically, and the damage could add up to more than a dealer considers its worth.:waving:
