Hi, anyone have any first hand experience owning these machines, I"m looking at one and I don"t know what weak points to look for. I can see the "clock" bracket on the backhoe is worn and will need imediate attention, the backhoe bushings and pins are shot. Motor starts quick, smokes a little but nothing crazy. I can spin the wheels in forward when I hit a pile, therefore the reverser seems stought enough. Any advice on what to look for is greatly appreciated, don"t want an expensive lawn ornament. Any thoughts on value, I know without seeing and hearing it"s tough but any thoughts will help.
Wish I had asked the same prior to purchase my 350B dozer, i"ve run into most common issues the hard way, would"ve rather gone in with eyes wide open.
