For that kind of money, I'd be looking at a 7020 with original paint, 2 extra hoe buckets, the kwik-tach and a set of forks. That way, I'd have power steering, 4 wheel drive, a stronger loader and a hoe with longer reach.

People pull prices out of the air, toss them on e-Bay and see what happens.

Other than the bad paint job, I like the machine. It looks honest and not abused. I'm surprised that it needed new rubber after only 1300 hours. It still has the original CCKA engine in it, though. I don't know how happy I would be with the bellhole bucket if I was just doing general excavation work. They have their uses but they don't pull a lot of dirt out of the hole on each pass compared to a standard bucket.

I'm thinking $4000.00 to $5000.00 tops for it. That's a big gap between the asking price. IMO.. he won't get a bid and the offers will shock him.

I agree

I put in an offer at 2600 and 3200. OBVIOUSLY LOW. I guess I think luck will strike twice LOL

I cant see paying more than 4000 for it. I have seen the newer, 6020 ones for as low as $5000 and like you said are that much newer, the engines are easy to get parts for same day, use less fuel, wider stabalizers, power steering. But thats just me.

Mine is gonna need back tires not too far out. Supposedly only has 500 something on it. Maybe I should stop doing doughnuts??

I want to sell the 648 to get one with a backhoe but that backhoe looks pretty clumsy in tight spots?

I have seen some Case trenchers with Wisconsin 4 cylinders with backhoes for as low as $2500/3000. That might be the way to go?

My brother and I grew up using our grandfather's 646LBH. (My brother now owns it.) It is a great machine for digging and trenching, but it rarely gets used for anything else. The counterweight is located under the machine and it has very minimal ground clearance. Also, the backhoe is difficult to remove and reattach which takes away from some of the tractor's other possible uses. Just my opinion, but keep the 648 for general use and get another LBH for digging and bragging rights! :trink:

price = LOL
I better jump on that one, I can be there in a half-hour. :lolno:
Funny thing is, my brother-in-law knows someone who sold a 644LBH for that much and it didn't look as good as that one.
