buying a skidder

Carol dugas I'm in the process of buying a JD 440B 1974 cable skidder.This machine has been sitting outside for 7 years due to a busted motor. A friend of mine who is a good mechanic and have lot of experience with skidder as well as other heavy equipement bought it to restore and sell it .He will put a good used motor and also check everything in it so that there will be no comeback for him. The tire are 80% worn but in my case still usable for many years with good chains. The price will be between 10000-15000 Can.depending on what it will have to put in it .
Any comment on JD skidder (reliability,operating cost,repair cost,etc...)?
Any comment on buying JD vs. Timberjack or Tree Farmer?
Any comment on this particular machine( anything to be aware of, price asked for it)?
Thanks. Carol
