Massey Ferguson 40E

Hi all, I'm looking at a Massey Ferguson 40E loader backhoe to compliment my TE20 on our hobby farm.
Went and had a look at the weekend, but not having ever used a backhoe/loader, I honestly had no idea what to look for.
The seller is a friend of a friend, we took it for a spin round their front yard and a had a play with the bucket and backhoe, all seemed in good order.
There was a build up of oil around the shift lever in the cab and one of the rams had a significant leak after we tried the backhoe, cab is in average condition and the panel for the backhoe controls was bent and not bolted on, but everything else looked ok. The seller is going to speak to their mechanic about the leaks and get them fixed before sale.
Does anyone else have one or used one of these beasts? Any known issues or niggles I should look out for?
Asking price is $15000 but the seller wants it gone and is open to reasonable offers.
