Interesting item, the  tub looks good but there is a lot of work to be done on the hydraulics and the engine. I can’t see the VD pumps or gearbox in the pics or the hydraulic oil cooler and the Lombardini engine looks like it is mounted back the front. The tyres are unusual and look like they would be more suitable than the industrial tread version that came standard.  The 3pl doesn’t look to be original but I could be wrong….I’d guess that it may be an adapted unit from the Wildcat. Anyway Rebuild it or Wreck it, depending on price it could be just what someone is looking for.

This machine appeared recently on Gumtree.  It has been repainted and the seller indicated that it has been store undercover and is in good running order. No attachments listed but it does come with two spare wisconsins, implement rams can be had for about 300 dollars new.

Looking at the pics it does look in pretty good shape, and given that non operational machines have been selling for up to three thousand dollars in sound condition, the asking price for this one isn’t to bad at $3800 or offer.

The issue would be to locate attachments but that could be way$_20(1)$_20$_20(5)$_20(2)$_20(6) easier than locating a machine in good working order,

Shaft Drive RT45 Question

Jeff Bussell  –  Jeff.bussell538@gmail.com

Hi all Jeff Bussell here, I’ve recently purchased another austrak rt45 this one a cummins 4b engine shaft drive with recent hydraulic pumps/ motors overhauled at torque hydraulics in Adelaide. I have a slight issue with the r/h side drive pump not developing charge pressure I’ve tried blocking the port to the servos isolating them, pulled the back of the pump off and checked the charge pump drive and all seems good the charge pump pumps oil but doesn’t seem to be building pressure like there’s an internal relief valve leaking any help would be greatly appreciated thanks Jeff.

This one looks to be in reasonable order. Note that the front ram is missing and listed as leaking. Most hydraulics places are loath to replace ram seals these days and when they do the cost is pretty much the same as a new ram. Expect to pay around $350 for a new ram, more if you can’t reuse the old hoses and fittings,

Buyers will need to organise transport themselves. I have transported them on a low sided car tandem without problems. I will assist loading with my tractor at my place.
