A loader is a great machine to have around the homestead, it will save you time and more importantly your back.:fingerscrossed:
Even in a ugly state it can get the job done, just make sure your HDY. Hoses are in good shape you sure don't what one to blow while your running :mowlawn:

John and Son welcome to the great CCI site. I hope you find this group as rewarding as I have. We all look forward to viewing your purchase and hearing from you about what doesn't working quite right. As mentioned the manuals can help tremendously, which I have printed for reference in my shop. Glad to have a Father and Son both interested in a common hobby Garden Tractors.
You have picked up one of the most capable Compact Wheel Loaders out there. This thing was originally created for the JI Case Construction Division. You can do a tremendous amount of work with that little guy.
If you guys are new to hydraulics, do a lot of reading to get up to speed. This is not a hydra stat. It has a true positive displacement gear pump. If the engine is running, the 644 is pumping oil. Work it hard, and you will be pumping several gallons of hot oil per minute under high pressure. Follow all safety precautions used when working around high pressure hydraulic systems.
Go through it and make sure hoses are in serviceable shape.
