Default Case 580ck backhoe

I'm adding a 1968 Case 580ck backhoe to the fleet. Purchase price is 2800. Gave 200 to hold it. Hope to pick it up Saturday.

Has no reverse and needs a left rear tire but it moves and stops and the hydraulics are good. It's a diesel and started right up with the cool weather we are having.

Those rigs have a forward reverse shuttle, don't they?
IRRC they have a separate oil reservoir for that.

Yup. You are right. It actually to me feels like the shuttle shift is bound up somehow to where it's stuck firmly in forward.

not so bad,but you have one shot at getting it on the trailer..maybe use the hoe to manuever the rear end around..great deal even if it needs work(and they always do)..just don't let the yellow iron disease set in

Bunk, it’s a bit late for that, he’s already got a girt great dozer stuck in his woods.

This Case is just the arrival of the next member of ORF’s Yellow Iron family. Give him time, it’s bound to expand further now he has a ‘breading pair’

My father-in-law had one of those years ago and had the shuttle stick in reverse. I can't remember what he had to do to fix it but I know it wasn't a major project...

Hell, you could go ahead and buy it with a clear conscience--it won't be yellow, just a sort of (rusty) red...

Plan is to bring the backhoe home Saturday. One of my friends who is experienced woth moving equipment is going to help me. Looking forward to getting it home. Need to improve part of my driveway already.

Also I can get scrap granite from Elberton Ga for free. Free except trucking. Neighbor has a single axle dump truck and is currently hauling it on for himself. Too chunky for driveway use but would make good fill. Think rip rap size but half that.
