That price may be $5K to high if the tracks are shot. With any tracked machine undercarriage condition is question #1. Better either take someone knowledgeable with you or do some research yourself. Next come the engine. The 1010/2010 used a sleeve deck engine which wasn't known for impressive life or design excellence. They work fine, no mistake, but if one cylinder goes bad you are into the whole sleeve deck assy and they aren't cheap. The block was also known for developing cracks between cylinders that would weep water according to my local Deere dealer. Never seen it myself. The reverser can be very expensive to fix too, but then, everything is very expensive these days! The machine itself is from the early 60's and relatively lightly built, so the care and abuse it received will be a big factor in condition and price. It's not a D9. It's not even a JD350. They weren't bad at all when they were new and had good tracks, but that might have been 50 years ago now. Don't get all puppy love and picture yourself doing countless hours of work with no down time because it probably won't happen, no matter what brand or model you find.

So, if the tracks and rolls are in great, 80% plus condition and the engine, gas or diesel starts fine, runs fine and has no issues and all the drive and hydraulic components are in proper working order it may be worth $5K to you. For $5500 it better have a good seat for both the crawler and BH too. I bought mine before I knew any of this for $2K, the engine was trashed and parts were missing, the tracks snake like a sidewinder and the hydraulic hoses ($$$) are junk. I have another $2K in it and more to come. Be very careful. A rubber tired loader/backhoe of similar capabilities may be available for the same or less money. Patience is a virtue in these things.
