I am looking at an 1845 skid steer loader. The owner says it's an A series. It has the Case 188 Diesel in it, so I'm sure it is an early one. He tells me that it can be pushed and the tires roll. I think this is not possible unless the chains on the wheel sprockets are broke. Is there any way this should roll when pushed? Thanks in advance for any help.

Perhaps possible, if sitting a long time and the oil in the hydro loops have leaked off. Or there is provision to open charge valves on the hydros.
DON'T move it far or fast, no faster than a very slow walk. If it has been towed, hydro motors may be ruined.

i think some of the early case skidloaders had a manual brake on it. i had a 1845b for over 10 years and if i remember right my motor stopped couple times when going down a hill. i had to lower the bucket to slow it down, pretty sure the c models stopped the machine from moving with the motor off or levers in neutral. could call case to find out for sure. i can tell you i broke a chain once and the side that broke would not roll until i removed the chain. it was all bound up in there. you can remove the four inspection plates to check the chains. believe a 5/8 or /16 wrench is all thats needed. if the owner wont let you check that then walk away.

It is not advisable to tow anything with hydraulic drive as the motor acts like a pump when it is turned by the gear train and the oil is dead ended, even if the levers are moved to the direction it's being moved in the relief valves are one way only and will not open when pressure builds up in the line, the only way that is a bit safe is disconnect the hoses at the motor to move it a short distance slowly.

I thought they shouldn't roll. I think something is broke in the final drives that is allowing it to roll. I might walk away from buying that one. It could get expensive to fix. Thanks for the information.
