Mercedes builds terrific diesel engines, and the onein mine starts easy, and runs great. Noleaks (rare for a diesel), but it only has 1694 miles on it! Freightliner is well known for their truckbuilding abilities, and Case is well known for their backhoes. The neat thing about the FLU-419 is thebackhoe folds up and lies across the back, out of the way. The backhoe is powerful. Itcan dig up to 14′ deep with a reach of over 17′, and it has a break out forceof 10,000 lbs! The front loader bucket israted at .75 cubic yards, the lift height is 98″. It’ll lift 3,300 lbs and the breakout forceis 6,000 lbs. It has an auxiliaryhydraulics attachment hose reel for running hydraulic power tools like ajack hammer, rock drill and hydraulic chainsaw, etc. These were included with them originally, andstored in compartments on the right side. These tools are valuable by themselves ($500 - $1000 apiece). Many people have removed them before selling theirFLU-419s, but mine still has the drill and jack hammer tools on board. Ibought a hydraulic chainsaw for it too, that I might include if this bringsenough. Occasionally you’ll see one ofthese FLU-419’s on eBay for cheap, but those typically have big problems. Mine is in great shape. The only reason I’m selling mine on eBay is (withcurrent virus concerns, and the number of people that would like to just comelook at it without buying) I don’t want a bunch of people just dropping by - onlythe actual buyer.

The 4WD didn’t engagewhen I first got it, but it was a simple pneumatic switch that went bad. I bought a new OEM one, and it all worksgreat now. The seats were showing somewear, so I had them professionally redone. There are switches on the rear (by the backhoe controls) that supposedlycan remote control the front bucket, and engine rpms, but I haven’t even had achance to even figure out how/if they work. I have replaced odds and ends as I found them (like window moldings,etc) – most just to keep it looking great. I had planned to keep this thing long term. It runs and operates great. Two of the hydraulic cylinders startedleaking, and I had them rebuilt. Theonly issue I know of now is one of the swing cylinders has just started leaking(used it pretty hard clearing some trees). Anything with hydraulic cylinders willeventually leak, and need service. It’sjust a part of owning hydraulic equipment. I’ve been told that these swing cylinders are easiestto rebuild on the machine (since the backhoe will lay down, allowing easy access),so I’ve just bought 2 rebuild kits (one for each side, though only one is leaking). The guy I bought it from bought newbatteries, new tires, and all new hoses on the front end.
