    Assuming it's in good condition, sounds like an excellent deal

    If you ask me it looks beat to sh!t. But if it works for you, more power to you. My buddy has a model 210:confused:, he likes it alot, but he says its still not as good as a CAT, CASE or JD. You got it a good price either way though.

    so far we like it a lot...the Cat was just a machine we rented last year...and so far this machine looks to be able to out preform it..

    i really like the 4 large tires and the 4 wheel steer....its so mean looking

    what makes you say it looks beat up?

    There's no way of telling whether it's beat up or not from that crappy picture.

    Five Star,you'll love the 4 wheel independant steering in commercial lots.

    Any ideas on what size pusher or blade you'll put on her?

    How;
    1- dirty it is = not taken care of
    2- all the surface rust
    3-the grease points do not look taken care of very well
    4- looks worn out

    It couldbe like mentioned above though just the pic.

    1.Powerwasher can fix that,the light yellow shows grime and grease well.
    2.Well it IS 10 years old,I beg to differ it looks in good shape.
    3.Grease points look ok to me?,I mean the pic is small and kinda far away enough to get a good look.
    4.Worn out?.........how? its a 10 year old backhoe,I've seen a few 2 year old machines in much worse condition.

    The Cat 420 IT I ran at my old job had much more rust on it than this one in total and it was 2 years old,Not dissing Cat,but paint and image to me means nothing its how it runs and how it produces.

    If you can see grease fittings in that pic, then I can see Neptune during daylight hours.

    LOL

    Give the guy a break, he was referring to the grease fittings on the right side (Only he can see them in the pic as we are not worthy). :)

    Good luck with the JCB, I always loved the way they look.
