    HI all,
    looking for some advice.
    I'm this close to buying a 2003 Gehl 7800 skid steer with 3000hrs.
    The machine looks great. It comes with a 90 inch bucket(big huh?)
    They want $ 25,000 for it.
    Should I be comcerned about the hours on it.
    It looks very clean,and drives nice.
    Thanks in advance.

    Those are big machines, more of a lift and load type machine. Kinda big for landscaping but I don't know what your uses are. Asking price seems a bit high by $5000IMO. Didn't look at the link to the Trader maybe more than $5000 high those hours are starting to get up there. It's different if you were the one that put the hours on it then you know the history.
