Default Cat lexion 460

We are going to look at 1 of the above. Any advice on what to look for and areas of concern with these machines. Has 3000 separator hrs. Is this too much or is it still serviceable. Will be doing 1000 ha but only 1-2 ton ha crops. Mostly wheat, barley and small amount canola.

Mate a old lexion would worry me in the mallee for parts. There was a huge amount of new parts destroyed in Mildura for lexions years ago. I don't know how well land power support 460s.

Worries me a bit too. They tell me here should be no problems as all machines are supposedly fully supported but I want to know more from them. Got a mate with one at kieth and he reckons its been good for him with little issues. Shall be getting as much info from as possible.

Machine will supposedly field ready when being sold. As always will come down to price.

What is wearing out on it. Is it worse than jd case etc. running a combine is not cheap whatever brand but don't want to be throwing good money away.
