    Default 1960 933F Traxcavator

    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Jim and I live in Vancouver WA. right across the river from Portland OR. I just purchased this old 1960 933F. She has been used very hard in her days. I am not sure where she started out, but she ended up in a scrap steel yard pushing piles of metal around. She is dented and scratched up pretty bad. She starts right up and seems to run okay. I purchased for 2500.00, and paid a guy 200 to haul it to my driveway. I figure is worth that much in scrap metal if everything goes south, or I'll part it out to some of you guys. As I said above, she's pretty rough but should do the job I need done here.

    There was a broken hydraulic line under the seat and I paid 200 to have a new one built, which I am sure is probably 100 too much. With that being said the hydraulic tank filler cap was missing and here in the pacific north west with all its rain the whole hydraulics system is contaminated and when drained looks like a 10 gallon milkshake. My question is, how will I ever get this whole hydraulic system flushed well enough that its not damaging anything when I start a clearing job on my property this summer? I'll post photos of Miss Citty below.
