Who's going to get it? 

 

 Mini Bull Dozer, Magnatrac - $325 (South Minneapolis)

One 1969 Struck Magnatrac, MD-55 mini Dozer with the optional 7 HP, Tecumseh HH-70 heavy duty, cast iron engine. Dozer was manufactured in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Bought this mini-dozer a couple of years ago and started obtaining restoration information and new restoration parts but never got to the actual restoration project. Was busy with too many other projects. 
As you can see from the pictures, this unit is in really good, solid, original condition. Has the heavy duty wide tracks with the industrial (manure spreader) style track chain. Unit has no non-factory mods, cuts or add on's. There is no rusted out areas, this is just a good old solid Struck crawler that is 44 years old. The tracks, drive shafts and drive sprockets are in really good condition along with the frame, mechanical levers, followers, idlers, pulleys and linkages. Engine runs poorly now, but it really needs a rebuild if a person plans to work this little crawler. With this sale I am also offering a spare HH-70 engine that is in OK condition but runs poorly too. Along with this you will get an original copy of the May, 1967 Popular Science magazine which featured the first Struck Mini-Dozer, the MD-34 which is really what started the Struck-Magnatrac path of success. New restoration parts (see pictures) include the following: Factory NOS Tecumseh carburetor, new original Struck throttle cable, extra Tecumseh carb kit, a new E3 spark plug, two NOS old style mufflers, a high performance (Rupp mini bike) air intake manifold w/ racing air cleaner, two new keyed drive shafts, four new FYH pillow block bearings, some new key stock material for the drive pulleys, four new Kevlar track drive belts (oil field quality), one new B style engine drive belt and four new malleable cast steel wing bolts for the hood attachment. I will also provide a copy of the original Tecumseh HH-70 shop repair manual and three publications from Struck Inc., including operating instructions, some detail part references with dimensions, and a sales brochure showing the dozer and all of the implements that were available for the MD-55. No shipping or delivery.

I don't think you'll have any problems selling that.  I just seen one for $3800, now it was restored but you can do a lot of restoration work for the difference.  Good luck with the sale.  I don't think my 60x100 lot would offer any work for the little beast.
