I'm in the process of trying to accquire a used machine. The owner says he doesn't have the manuals. Not sure if he's the original owner. Anyway, I was wondering what manuals you would recomend getting. I'm not sure what came with it originally. If anything, other than an operators manual. I've looked on a couple of sites that have manuals and there are about 8-10. Some may have been duplicates or for differant serial numbered machines. But, was wanting to get what I needed. Operators, U/C & Chassis Parts breakdown, Engine breakdown and parts manual, Maintenance. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the help.

James

Sorry everyone for the delay. Like I said there wasn't any secrecy. Anyway, I was looking at 4 machines. After considering everything everyone said to check and look for, I decided on the International 125e. It's a '79. It had the second best undercarriage of the four. The best had a new U/C. But, cost 2.5 times more. Anyway, I had originally looked mainly at dozers. But, I bought this one. Plus, he delivered it to me Saturday afternoon. I spent Saturday evening getting acquainted with "Sheila". Pushing over some small brush and trying to clean up and smooth some burn piles. Sunday, I did a little more with it. I needed to move a pile that the operator I hired piled up. Right where the electric line needed to be buried. So, I condensed his pile by about 6-8 feet. Then I graduated to larger trees. I had my girlfriend take some video's of me pushing them down. Only to find out after the fact she told me she couldn't get the camera to work. The trees weren't large by some standards. But, for my first trees I thought everything went well. The first tree was a 60' pine about 8" in diameter. The second was a 60' oak about 14" in diameter. Both fell right where I planned for them to fall. Then I cut them up for firewood. They needed to be cleared for the house. I didn't want to take them out. But, there wasn't any other way and get the house in. Then I leveled out the dirt where they had been. I think I did pretty good for my first time.

Now ,a couple of the things I'd like to find out now other than the manuals I'll need is; Where would I find out what type of hydraulic fluid I need. Would the Case dealer know or would I need to go to the Komatsu dealer? Or, I'm sure one of you will know. Also, what type of grease do you use to tighten the tracks? I want to try and get the routine maintenance done. I'm not sure when it was last done. The oil was fairly new looking and not black. Thanks to everyone for all of the info you provide. What a great service. I hope to learn a lot from everyone.

Thanks again,
James

Anyone have an opinion on what manuals I should get or need for this '79 International 125E?

Here are some before and after photos. The first is the oak tree. The others are the burn pile areas. There wasn't a before and after of the other burn pile. So, I showed it "After" from two different views. Well one got uploaded twice and I could figure out how to delete it. Sorry.

Again thanks to everyone for this great site.

I am cheap enough I usually look up parts on line. So then I just have to pay for the operators and service manuals.

I always start out with parts manual and maintenance manual then later can add repair/service manual.
Be sure the serial # on the parts manual matches yours--beware of the ones that say eg; 5U1 and up
make sure your serial# is in the range listed eg; 5U2022-5u3792

It would help if you mentioned exactly WHAT machine you're looking for manuals for.

I didn't specifically mention it till I make sure I'm going to get it. But, no mater what machine you get I figured you'd get the same manual for whatever you bought. Or, that's my way of thinking.

Thanks for the replies.

James

P.S. I should find out tomorrow if I'm getting it.

My choice of a manual would greatly depend on the make and model of the machine. For some - factory tech manuals are available free in PDF files. For some others - used OEM manuals available used or new in reprint. For a few - nothing easily found but condensed shortened manuals like I&T or Jennsales. I don't get it! You take the time to post the question yet refuse to mention what the machine is?

What machine makes a big difference. Why all the secrecy?

I ended up getting the International 125E. It's a '79. So, any thoughts on the manuals I should get?

Thanks,

James

No secrecy. I just don't know which machine I'm getting till tomorrow. But, I figured that no matter what machine someone bought they'd want certain manuals for it. So, why would it make a differance on which machine? I'm a newb. So, I'm just asking. I'd think that no matter what machine, you'd want all of the most important manuals. I'm just trying to figure out what they are. That's all.

Give a list of the machines you're looking at. Some manuals aren't worth the paper they're printed on. Depending on the machine, a service manual could cost $100's of dollars. Your request is too open ended. It's like asking what tire to put on something and not having a clue what it is.
