Customer Question
I'm looking at used 953C...
I'm looking at used 953C crawler loaders. Two machines in particular have 11,700hrs and one with 14,400hrs. They both have new undercarriages and paint. They look clean and engines sound good. Both have the 3126 six cylinder engine. I have reservations about the high hours on the engines. How long before these will need a complete overhaul?

pretty basic answer. I suppose I could have figured that 12500 out myself. I called a Cat equipment place and talked with one of their technicians about these high hour machines. He talked with me for over 15 minutes and didn't cost me a dime. Basically without an oil analysis with the machines life in both the engine and hydraulic system you are just taking a chance on when things may break at that high hour on engine and hydraulics.
