    Looking at a 98 Daewoo 601 with 900 hrs. Good shape , new rubber, no leaks, comes with bucket. Any input on these machines? Good nor bad. Things I might need to watch out on this brand. What might the value be? Just needing something to load salt. Any input welcome.

    Whats cheap for this unit? Ran machine, everything worked. Has 1000Hrs. No leaks. Just wanting to load salt cheap. Looked at plenty of bobcats just want alot for higher hr machines. Going to use just for the season and then unload it.

    A friend of mine has a large excavating and snow business and the only skids he has are Daewoo. He has had very good luck with his and did not pay alot. He said he can buy two Daewoos for the cost of one bobcat. I used one of his skids for a few days and all I have to say is it is not fancy but it did the job without any complaints. I dont know about price on those machines but I would say alot cheaper then a bobcat. For loading salt that will be perfect, we use a Thomas for loading salt!
