What to look for
- Have a good look around it
- Are there any leaks
- Is the pump clean
- Does it sound good
- Ask and be clear as to what is being sold with it
- Has it been tested, when was the test and by whom. Remember a test follows a specific set of criteria, and is only applicable at that moment, if its run into a tree in the year, for example the test is still valid.
Look at all 4 motors for any damp that looks like insignificant weeping of oil.
Make sure wheel motors are dry
Any crack on on the top of front axle is a big issue
Make sure wheels are in straight line after full lock in left and right
Cracks in the main chassis
Back axle should’ve been strengthened
try driving it up a hill to make sure hydraulic pump is still ok
