Re: JDK 690 D excavator
Just check the basics.Run it Warm it up good.Check the boom and stick for being straight,look at and check pins and bushings on boom and stick.Check over undercarrage.If it is worn too much replacement can cost more that machine is worth.It does take alot of farm work to wear the undercarrage out to a level it can,t be used.
The main pump is a costly item on the units.Hope this helps
