    A little while back I sold my tired old 580CK, was a solid machine but I was tired if having no cab and wasn't interested in splitting it to do a clutch. I've run across a few replacement machines but many were either junk or out of my price range. However, I was offered a 580G, which is never heard of before. From what little info I've seen, these were gray market machines meant for sale in Europe. The particular unit is 4x4, extendahoe, with the 4in1 front bucket. Has the David Brown diesel in it. From what the owner tells me, it runs great and works fine, the only real issue with it is that the front differential is messed up. He says the yoke for the front driveshaft won't turn so the front shaft is out if the machine. Other than that from the pictures he sent me jt looks solid and he's only asking 7500obo. My big question is are these machines on par with the Es and are parts findable for them, or should I stay away and wait for something US made? I'll try to post up the pics he sent me

    Those 2 cans of Knocka-Knocka juice in the cab should give you some insight about engine condition...Looks like a smokin' deal for $7500 but could be a money pit...

    He claims he avoids using ether as much as possible, and that the thing runs good and don't smoke or anything. Says fir winter starts he sticks a heater under it for a while

    No not yet haha, the seller won't be around until this weekend. However I also just found a decent 680H at a lower price than the 580, so I'm gonna take a look at that machine first, since it would better suit my needs anyway

    Quick closing update, finally found a machine. Ended up with a 580E that I got for fairly cheap, needs a few things here and there but mechanically it's a solid unit and I'm very happy with it, glad I waited

    Another example of taking your time when looking for any kind of construction equipment.
    It always has its rewards.
    Nice looking 580E.
    Are you going to fix the door rot ?
