Looking for some input !!!!
Hey all !!
My first machine !!!
I'm looking at a Komatso PC45R-8 1999 !!!
I Am wondering if anyone has any experiences with this machine , good or bad ????
Just going to use it around the property !!! Looking for some advice on what I should checkout on the machine ??
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated !!!!
Mike I would make sure you look at the big picture and see how well it was maintained and if its been beat to death! pin slop , how many hours , how it starts cold, look at the final drive oil and hydrolic oil for evidence of very fine metal. A fresh paint job would make me look even harder for what's wrong with it. a set of final drives could make you $7000 lighter in the wallet so make sure it tracks strait and both tracks turn at the same speed.
Hey XCM !!!
Now that's what I'm in search of !!!
Sounds like Great specific things to check out !!!!
Thanks for the advice !!
it would be Great if anyone has anything to add !!
I'm glad I found this forum !!!
Thanks again Mark,
First excavator or first machine? it had better be a good deal or your project list odd. Why wouldn't you want a skidsteer or at least a backhoe loader instead. You realize how slow that machine is right? Do you have a dump trailer/bed?
