1997 or 1998 Ford New Holland 655E Loader Backhoe 4WD Extendahoe
Date of Manufacture on ROPS is 7/5/97
9394 Hours on Working Meter
This machine is rough in appearance, but starts, runs and works great. Some of our rig workers attempted to paint the machine. The paint job made the machine look a lot worse. Tires all hold air. One front tire is probably 90%, while the other three tires are probably 30% or less. Rear Tire Size: 16.9-28. Front Tire Size 14-17.5. Backhoe bucket is 17" wide. Loader bucket is 88" wide. Loader and backhoe pins are surprisingly tight for the hours on the machine. This would be a good machine for a farm, shop, yard etc.
The following items were tested and seem to function properly:
All Hydraulics (Loader, Backhoe and Outriggers)
No obvious hydraulic leaks or bleeding off noticed.
Chrome looks good on all hydraulic cylinders.
Loader, tractor and backhoe structural members seem to be in good condition (no cracks or repairs noticed).
Service brakes work great. Parking brake does not.
4wd works as expected.
Transmission seems strong. All gears work as expected.
Torque Converter Lock Out
Engine starts easily and runs strong.
Batteries seem to be good.
