Oh boy. Water is not a problem. Oxygen is. Oxygen in water is the catalyst for rust.
When you get to the machine, pop the plugs, drain the oil out of everything. Fill the cylinders with diesel and turn it over by hand. Fill it again and let it set for a short time draining out the oil and hydraulics gunk.
Your electrical system is flooded out. That might be a slight pain to resurrect.
If you have a hand crank, this is easy enough. No hand crank? Use the fan belt.
After all the oil is drained, fill it up with diesel and let it set until you can really get to it. 5 gallons of oil is the normal hyd oil fill, give it 8 gallons.
The engine needs about 3 or 4 gallons to submerge everything.
