    Not sure I would buy a loader from a company who also makes tv's and appliances.
     
  4. It should be a Clark tranny and a cumming diesel. I ran one back in the day it performed okay.

    Just arrived today. Most likely will be feeding a crusher in a week or two. IMG_20200513_164944.jpg IMG_20200513_174911.jpg IMG_20200513_164924.jpg

    2012 980H, just a few hours over 6000 hours. The first 4 or 5 years after it was new, the loader sat parked never used. IMG_20200512_075831.jpg

    The oldest one at work by far. 1980 966C, this is the last one left that was part of an order of 25 brand new 966C's in 1980. The fella that had this when it was brand new still runs loader here (2012 980H) . The new 980M pictured above will be going to a fella that is 74 and has now been operating loaders from 980's and up for over 40 years feeding crushers.
