Just looking for some info from you guys that would be more knowledgeable about a 2010 crawler.

Found a 2010 Crawler for sale. Thinking bout going and taking a look at it. Want to use it for some landscaping work around my farm. Light work, nothing too strenuous. Ad says its in fair condition, ready for work, good hydraulics. Pictures show a clean machine. Asking $5500.

What should I be specifically be looking for? Any problem areas to keep an eye out for? Are parts common to find? Any experiences and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Ill try and post some pics.

That price may be $5K to high if the tracks are shot. With any tracked machine undercarriage condition is question #1. Better either take someone knowledgeable with you or do some research yourself. Next come the engine. The 1010/2010 used a sleeve deck engine which wasn't known for impressive life or design excellence. They work fine, no mistake, but if one cylinder goes bad you are into the whole sleeve deck assy and they aren't cheap. The block was also known for developing cracks between cylinders that would weep water according to my local Deere dealer. Never seen it myself. The reverser can be very expensive to fix too, but then, everything is very expensive these days! The machine itself is from the early 60's and relatively lightly built, so the care and abuse it received will be a big factor in condition and price. It's not a D9. It's not even a JD350. They weren't bad at all when they were new and had good tracks, but that might have been 50 years ago now. Don't get all puppy love and picture yourself doing countless hours of work with no down time because it probably won't happen, no matter what brand or model you find.

So, if the tracks and rolls are in great, 80% plus condition and the engine, gas or diesel starts fine, runs fine and has no issues and all the drive and hydraulic components are in proper working order it may be worth $5K to you. For $5500 it better have a good seat for both the crawler and BH too. I bought mine before I knew any of this for $2K, the engine was trashed and parts were missing, the tracks snake like a sidewinder and the hydraulic hoses ($$$) are junk. I have another $2K in it and more to come. Be very careful. A rubber tired loader/backhoe of similar capabilities may be available for the same or less money. Patience is a virtue in these things.

$5500 is a lot of money for a 2010 crawler/loader. That is unless it had been all gone-through and in excellent condition. When it comes to the "10" series crawlers, I'd rather have a gas engine. Some of the parts for the diesels are near impossible to get.

In my area of NY - a typical running "average" 2010 crawler would bring $1500-$3000. For $5500 (or less) you could buy the more modern 450 that took its place.

As someone else mentioned - 1010s and 2010s use "sleeve-decks" so sleeves are only changed all four at once. That in itself is no big deal. Who the heck rebuilds an engine without replacing all the sleeves anyway? Part prices and availability is the issue - especially with diesels.

2010 had a lot of Deere firsts. First full-size wet sleeve engine, first HL-R powershift transmission, and first diesel with a Stanadyne/Roosamaster rotary injection pump. The early 2010 diesels went through many quick upgrades and mods.

Thanks guys, appreciate the info. Thinking I'll pass on this one. Wasn't really sold on it being a diesel, definitely would prefer a gas more inside my comfort zone.

Thanks again guys.

Emergency I am taking a 2010 loader to scrap! Hope you get this in time or anyone who is interested.
He is going to get about $1500 in scrap. Runs and in great shape about 50% left on undercarriage. Needs a Hydrochloric port manifold so the guy is scraping it. In Washington state if the shipping is to much not worth it. Part can be found. On my truck heading for scrap unless you get to it soon. Lots of good parts good shape. smw@olynet.com
