I have a BX2200 of similar vintage that I picked up about 3 years ago with just under 1000 hours on the clock. My hydraulic controls come off with the loader.
Check the air cleaner to make sure it is working. The mount breaks and people fix em as best they can. Not always good.
I have been replacing the hoses on my LA211 one at a time since. Maybe the smart thing to do it just change them all.
Unless the dealer did it change the hydraulic fluid. You can't trust what you see at the dip stick. If you think it is good drain some out of the bottom to have a look.The $80 or so it costs for the correct fluid is worth the money. Maybe change out the fluid in the front axle. I put 80/90 in mine.
I added a pariana tool bar to the bucket. It helps with digging and lets the bucket hold a bit more. Also makes it longer so I more easily haul stuff like the large feed tubs we use for planters. Very pleased with it. I take it off to move snow because it digs in too easy.
The front tires are not the best and take an act of god to get them onto the rims. If you ever need new ones but new tires and rim combo from kubota, the newer version has larger rims with the same overall wheel diameter.
The hydrostatic cooling fan can get busted, some people have added sheilds/armour/skid plates to protect it.
