Here is a very late model, higher meter hour machine, that has a lot of neutral non working hours on it and a super low lifetime load factor of just 24%. Should make an excellent machine with a lot of life left. We have documented service work order verification from Fining Cat showing the recent work order and transmission rebuild. We also have some oil sample history. This machine is pretty darn clean and straight except for a minor bend on the back RH battery box and a small few inch piece of fiberglass broke out on lower LH hood. The machine operates as it should, and we are currently performing a full Cat TA2 pressure test inspection that we will have available as well.

Please call or email to have additional information and documentation emailed to you.

We invite your own personal or 3rd party inspection of this machine anytime, located at our facility in Bellevue, Iowa. We offer Fair freight rates to any end point, and excellent financing programs if needed.
