What would it cost to repower, I'm not mechanical enough to do a bunch of fabricating to make a new motor work.

I would at least check out the cost of rebuilding the onan...I have refreshed a couple and the cylinder walls have needed nothing but honing. I think they are awesome engines and would only consider repowering if the onan was not rebuildable.

Dude, buy it, otherwise I am loading up the truck and trailer....:howdy:

Also, check to make sure he has the loader stands for the loader. That would be nice to get with it.

You guys are tempting me but that motor problem is holding me back, he says it runs but just on one cylinder.

Then this deal is not for you. Let someone else go get it.

If it were within 200 miles of me, I would simply go inspect it, and pay his asking price, or a couple hundred less if I could talk him down a bit.

Heck. two weeks ago I drove 38 straight hours to get my 44 loader from WI to Virginia and back. I would buy even with the one I bought already.

Also, is there any reason the 44 would not bolt right up to his 300?
It would require a few passengers to help turn the steering wheel !


Just curious- How much weight can a 44 lift ? ( assuming the rear end was weighed down enough to max out the loader )

Is max different for different hp tractors ? or do they all run similar hydraulic pressure ?

My 44 loader weighs about 700 lbs. I think I remember that the pump pressure is greater on the units that have the pump under the belly of the tractor. (420- 430). I have a manual some where I will go for a look. :D

Just talked to him and he buys and sells on the side and he traded for it and hasn't had it very long. He thinks he tractor is an 1986 and says he hasn't looked at the motor so he don't know whats wrong with it (yea right) No loader stands and has a few people (probably one of you guys...:00000060:) coming to look tomorrow so I doubt it's going to last very long.

so I doubt it's going to last very long. At that price I did not figure it would be there very long... :sad_02:

I have learned that if you find a good buy on some thing like this, you need to go right away and get it... or some one else will.:crybaby:

You should've jumped on it, like D-Dogg said the loader alone is worth nearly the asking price. The Ags on there would get you past it! And I think I see wheel weights between the rear duals so it had the "extras" to make a good deal. The engine problem could be a coil, a plug wire or a valve sticking open which could be a minor repair.
