    Exposed drive chains and sprockets? No way, the tracked models ar still better.

    I have ran that model, its a nice machine, not the best in hard ground, and it is hard to use in high gear..

    I am with ron, I dont like the exposed chains..

    Am I an idiot or does that hour meter read 33 and 5/10ths? Looks like the machine has more than 33 hours on it though...

    Give him 6500 and I'd say you got a pretty good deal. Those machines are bulletproof. Exposed chains isnt a big issue on these machines, you can't take them where most skids go anyways, they're geared more for light residential landscaping where you dont often need to drive over all kinds of cr*p. I've put a lot of hours on these machines, and never once have I had a chain/sprocket issue. Obviously a track machine would be nicer to operate, but you're also spending a couple grand more. I actually just dug 25 posts holes this morning with that identical model, but we put the rubber over the tire tracks on it, and they work great!

    Oh, and ps, don't be expecting to fill that bucket with anything more than mulch!! They get pretty tipsy already when you're fully extended with a regular bucket full of gravel..

    that's has more than 330 hours. Look where your feet go.....there's no paint left. I'd say about $5k.
