I am looking at a 1994 JD 690 ELC. The UC is 70%, boom pins have a little play but not bad, and the main bearing it about the same. Machine has no welds, and still has good original paint. Sheet metal is all straight, runs good, pressure is 40lbs lower than factory rating, and the oil test for hyd/engine both came back good. Meter shows 2200, but not working, and it comes with a 42 inch bucket, and a manual thumb. So what is it worth? Owner asking 34,500. What should I offer? Also, has anyone ever welded different ears on buckets? I found a 60" CF ditching bucket ($700 used) but it has the wrong ears. CF sells the ears for $600. Or should I just find a different bucket?
