    Working on a similiar probject, doesn't need quite as much though. Bought a Fiat Allis 745, didn't need anything mechanically believe it or not, touched up some of the paint, still needs more touch up & interior insulation replaced, the foam was shot, but that stuff is cheap & has to wait till next summer. Couple other minor things. Like yours it is a monster 40+k lbs, 200+ HP, fuel tank holds I believe 88 gallons, & I'm sure it will like its fuel. It is alot better than a payment on a new one though, I have two of those that is more than enough.

    Nice machine! Where are you going to be parking it and what kind of motor is in it?

    Similar size to the 644JD I ran for 2-3 years. We ran a 16' box on that, handled it no problem at all. What size of box are you running on it?

    We have a couple of 97 Cat 769D rock trucks at work that have the air wipers, so there still used on some modern machines. I'd say that loader is older than you realize. Iooks early 70's.

    I drive a 1984 GMC General once in a while that has air wipers. Does the loader have air brakes to? The old CAT 966 I ran had air brakes.
