I had a NH310 bought new in 1979. Ran it until 2003. Very reliable! Most I did was 6300 hay and 1800 straw in one year. At the last used very little as I converted to round bales.
That said it all depends on how it was cared for. look for wear on the knotters and any place that rotated. You can tell a lot just looking at the wear on the drawbar!
One problem that was hard to find yet easy to fix once I figured it out was the adjustment for the plunger lock out. It would randomly snap a shear pin for no reason it seamed. Got that adjusted and all was great.
Also check the slip clutch. I had to rebuild that as there was some wear there. Of course I was running it with a 7000, so I was using a lot of HP on it.
With the 7000 I was able to pull a wagon behind it on my hilly ground.
