I'm getting ready to build a house and thought I could do a lot of the work myself (driveway, geothermal heat pump, septic, fence line clearing, and maybe a small pond (75' dia) as well as a lot of little projects that have always been to big for a shovel. Anyway, the idea is to buy a backhoe and use it a few years then sell it again. I almost bought a 680L last year but backed out at the last minute. My search leads me to believe that a 580 Case is the perfect size for what I need and for resale later. what do you guys think of this one: http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/grd/1786334591.html I talked to the guy tonight and he seems like a good honest guy. I'm thinking 20K would be a good price for this. What do you guys think?
