    If anyone is seriously interested in a loader this size I have a Case W20B for sale in Northern Illinois. 3200 total hours with about 200 on the rebuilt engine. I'm working on replacing the previous owners name with some stock decals.

    Asking $22,000. Talk to me!!!!!

    Thought some of you might find this interesting. At work there is two 1997 Caterpillar 769D 40 ton rock trucks that have been wore out and parked for sometime. Hour wise they are at least 25,000. About this time last year one of them was sent to the local Caterpillar dealer for a full Cat rebuild. Total cost to frame up overhaul the 769D was over $400,000 CDN a new truck would've cost at least 1 million IMG_20181002_182612.jpg IMG_20181002_182612.jpg IMG_20180925_121231.jpg 66008027_10156699052872408_6739527617046642688_n.jpg IMG_20190705_144536.jpg IMG_20190705_145954.jpg IMG_20190705_145958.jpg IMG_20190705_145905.jpg IMG_20190715_120534.jpg

    I need some money!! How many do you want to buy for $975,000 each??

    The reality about your story is, that some b ok nehead in your comlany paid over 400 grand to fefurbish a machine thats over FORTY years old!!!!!

    40 years!!! Call an accountant and ask him what the depreciation on that one is!!!

    Like comedian Ron White says - Ya' cant fix STUPID!!!!!!

    What is the depreciation on over $1 million?

    Then add in all the emissions and electronics on a new one...you sure it doesn't pencil out?

    Same math where a $400k refurb doesn't make sense but a $1 million purchase does.

    That rock truck was one of two, the second one is at the dealer right now getting the same. Another company with a large quarry operation about a couple hours away did the same with two 773E
