Case isn't a bad machine, biggest killer of a TLB is abuse and rot. If it's seen manure or salt just get back in your truck.

A little bit is one thing, I've seen some 4-5yr old machines that are just rotted to pieces. We bought a low hour 644K deere loader that had loaded salt for 1yr, never again, brake issues, literally tear the whole machine apart.

The 580 E was famous for rust. Look under the rear fenders,the bottoms of the doors,pick up the floor mats if you can. The E series backhoe doesn't   
 have as much lift as the k series(two smaller hydraulic cylinders vs. one large one) . I can't remember if the e series has a case or a cummins diesel,but both are good engines. As snowstorm mentioned, check for blow-by.I had a k series with a cummins that got tired enough that it would not  start at 10 degrees,which doesn't work well to load sanders.
If you find one that is in good shape but needs engine work,remember that the case engines are sleeved,but the cummins are not,so a cummins would have to be bored .
