If it is running ,operating without issues yeah that is cheap . But most likely a $5000 FLU419 needs $10,000 in repairs.This is the thing I don't know what a cheap, fair priced or an expensive FLU419 would cost. Would cheap be ~$5000?
Not a completely fair comparison as I needed a backhoe. So I bought a SEE, because I liked them better than a traditional backhoe.How much did you buy your FLU419 for and is it making you money?
Ouch! Did you not know about this forum before starting the repairs, or did you not have time to deal with it yourself?The guys transporting mine, moved it in the middle of the night from one trailer to another and I had to hire a crane to remove it from the trailer They did some damage and I had it dropped at the local afreightliner dealer....which was a mistake. It sat for 9 months waiting for parts and repairs until I finally ordered parts myself and found someone to help me with repairs.
580E = M 350 Military designation#If it is running ,operating without issues yeah that is cheap . But most likely a $5000 FLU419 needs $10,000 in repairs.
If you want something to make money with buy a 580 Case ( the backhoe on the FLU is from a 580C or D , the twin cylinder design was the worst model Case built ) or 310,410 or 510 John Deere.
