That rivet looks weird. I'd buy a new one I think.

The paint scheme seems to match the year as my friend's '06 160 has the same paint scheme. Can't understand why the hours are so low that's really weird.

maybe like tractors someone purchased it for an investment

a contractor purchases it and died shortly after leaving it in a shed

it was purchased for a large project and sat as a standby machine, in case another went down

The boom angle looked odd to me, plus the welding and slight differences in paint there. But it does match other machines of that vintage/paintjob.

I half considering changing the TB145 for an 8 tonner, ideally a TB175 but they have some Hyundais in stock that are reasonably priced, is there a reason they are cheaper than the rest?

They were probably a good few thousand cheaper when new, so that must make a difference in the S/H price.

possible that one took a knock ... looking at the corner of the plate all ragged ...... but a pop rivet FFS
