    Around 13-15K?
    We have a 94 860, bought it in 2015. Was offered 10k for it in the spring of this year.
    Depends on whats buckets are with, is ther a quick hitch, cosmetic condition etc.

    Was down in Kelly’s getting a few Horsch parts. Never heard of these. Does he still sell KATO .

    He has a Loader as well from that brand. An absolute bear of a yoke to look at. It kinda looked a bit like a Volvo from certain angles but I could be mistaken although Volvo have interests in other brands as well?.

    A relative has 1 of them . With the older DB 996 engine.i Only worked it twice , for possibly an hour altogether . I thought it lovely to dig with . Engine slow to start , maybe just that one ? Its 2 wd , and front axle a weak spot , especially if owner doesent know what a grease gun is for …..
    A lot of castings in the back acter . If cracked/welded , run away . Torque can fail , as can anything , but its often just a spring that breaks.


    DB engine up to 88 . Cummins engine after that .
    A local ready mix supplier had one for a while , maybe 10 years ago now , reckoned that they were far ahead of a 3 CX. another man I know has one for 20 + years . Loves it.
    I don't know anything about parts .
