It’s advertised as a 2020 model. And 900 hours. Thank you for the replyMy data does not show that exact serial number but does indicate that it is a 2014 model year. It must must be very inexpensive to purchase and ship to here. Make sure you get a parts book and service manual as part of the deal. There will be no support here for it. Also consider that it may be stolen. How many hours are advertised on it?
If you are an appraiser, your job is to identify the value of the asset for the function it is going to be used for. You're not supposed to care about what your client wants at all. You are not their advocate, you only identify and make an opinion based on the facts that you find by research.
I have to pay for access to data bases that provide me that information. You might try solving the issue by doing some research on Machinery Trader and find similar machine serial numbers and stated years of manufacture.
I appreciate the concern, but I am independent and I have been doing this for about 12 years now. This is the first Komatsu brand I've seen here in Arkansas, and I've just been struggling a bit to find a year or anything close to it, as the owner stated he wasn't sure, but thought between 2010 and 2014. Unfortunately, the market varies drastically from 2010 to 2014, based on the research I've done, and I don't want to get the guy less or more than what it's worth. This has been one of only a handful of claims to trip me up, and I happened onto this site in hopes of assistance, but I'll look elsewhere, and I appreciate your assistance.You can subscribe to Top Bid and their data base. What state are you in. You may not be allowed to even work on the case if it is for an insurance claim.
