Thread: Telehandler for sale

  1. #1

    Telehandler for sale

    Finished my build, telehandler is for sale. https://rochester.craigslist.org/hvo/6823237301.html

    I'm listing it for what I paid for it, $12,500. It's for sale locally but if any members want it I'd go for $10,000.

    I built a 40x40 with it.


    The one big issue with it is there is a worn spot on the flywheel where the starter engages. If the motor comes to a rest in that spot, the motor won't turn over. I have always been able to start it by turning the fan blade by hand or "rocking" the motor by turning the key 3-4 times untill it turns over. I was quoted roughly $2000-2500 by a big time outfit to replace the ring gear but never.bothered. Just want to be upfront.

    You are gonna regret selling it. I can see that I will need mine around til I am old and... well maybe I'll just need mine til I die.

    Just today I got my Isuzu truck stuck and had to hook it up to the telehandler to get it up near the road.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    I feel there's a joke about gravel or gutters in here somewhere.....

    I do wish I owned a telehandler though! Day 30 when our rental went back was sad for me. It's also sad paying the rental bill!

    Selling your lift Ronnie?!?! U giving up building??

    I thought about a bobcat. But they are more expensive and I'm mainly going to be mowing grass and plowing snow. Tractor should be good.

    Not giving up building, but 80% of my builds are far enough away that I rent instead of transport mine. So it just sits. If I build local I'll just rent here too. Then I don't have to maintain a machine I never use that is grumpy because I never use it.

    Steve W has a backhoe, and he bought a skidsteer.

    He has since sold the skidsteer.

    Take that as you may.

    Hey Thoner, you're kinda letting this thread get away from you.


    I'm thinking I will eventually get rid of my backhoes and go for a tracked excavator and a skidsteer.




    Of course I'll keep the telehandler.

    He sold the skid steer because he didn't also have a mini excavator....I'm guessing
