Here's a few pics of my 1980's Struck MagnaTrac MT3000 Mini Dozer that some members were wanting to check out. These later versions are very heavy duty compared to the older smaller units. I got 3 heavy duty blades with it too, a 54 inch dozer blade, a 48 inch scoop/dump bucket with teeth and a 48 inch ripper blade. Most everything on it is locked up from sitting out for a few years. Once it warms up this year, I will start to loosen up the stuck parts and try to get it running. It has a 18hp Briggs 2 cylinder engine that the owner said ran good but the carb needs rebuilt, yeh right.

That's a neat machine. I wish you the best on getting it all working again.

That certainly does look heavier than the older ones. With those 3 attachments you should be able to do just about any material pushing, moving, gouging job that comes up. It's amazing how the carbs always seem to need cleaning/ rebuilding on anything that's won't run and is for sale!

Looks to be a well built piece of machinery. Also looks like it would pull just about anything around the yard backwards. Thanks for the pics, looking forward to seeing the resurection.

Does it actually say Struck anywhere on the machine?  Reason I ask, is that there are 2 varieties of magnatrac dozers.  One was made by C.F. STRUCK and the other has no affiliation with them.

Here's the Id. tag on my Struck mini dozer. I don't know if it is related to the CF Struck company or not. I find it interesting that the Serial Number reads, EXP12. It could be a pretty early production model, maybe Experimental 12.  Maybe the 12th one made? That would be cool!  KJ052-2.jpg
