Though it first appears that the bucket and it's hardware are in pretty good shape, I've been told that they're pretty well beat.

According to Jeff Solley, the drag and lift chains are worn nearly in two, the teeth are worn out, and the bucket needs repair.

He says the machine appears basically ready to dig, if someone wanted to replace all of the normal wear parts.
