    Machine has just under 1800 hrs on it. The owner before me overheated it and cooked the motor and then just let it sit until I bought it. I had the motor completely rebuilt and have paperwork to prove it. Motor has about 400 hrs on it now. Lights, wiper, and all the small stuff works as it should. Tires are 70% and also comes with a set of solid tires with rims for demo work. Comes with a set of tracks that are in perfect shape. Will come with dirt bucket and forks as well. Located in Marlette Mi 48453 Asking $8400 for everything but if you just want the skid steer itself then $7400 Call 989 213 8091 Thanks Brent

    im very interested just a little worried it might be a lil small for my needs. you ever had a pusher or blade on it? im not sure how it would do with an 8ft box and im sure a 9ft blade is out of the questions, just not enough mass behind it.

    It should handle both just fine. 753's aren't that terribly small. Good tires would be the key.

    Bump for a great, honest seller!

    We push a 8ft box with it on only big storms when we need a extra rig and it pushes that great.

    How much weight can it lift with the forks. I'd like to lift skids of salt.

    With the standard tires it will only lift like 1500lbs but the heavy demo tires it lifts almost 2000lbs. I do bulk salt and dont remember what a skid of salt weighs so I hope that helps.

    Are you sure that's a 98? I thought the lettering was horizontal in the late 90's?

    It was. I think they stopped that style lettering in 96. If its a 98, it was repainted at some point possibly and had the wrong decal kit put on it?..? My father-in-law used to have that exact same machine. Then again the OP may also be mistaken on the year.?..?

    I am not 100% sure on the year I guess. When I had it rebuilt the dealer told me the numbers where of a 97 or 98 but I guess that could be off by a year or so. It very well could be a 95 or 96 Im not 100% sure.
