From Ad,

 

Custom made mini dozer looking for offers, Just completed has 2 hydraulic pumps one for loader other an extra for attachments, 18 hp Onan 2 cylinder motor. Eaton hydrostatic transaxle is cast iron, Hood and some chassis parts are from doner Bolens lawn mower. Has cruse control. I used the cruse for grand kids that cant reach peddle. So you get it going speed you like and turn on switch and holds that speed until brakes are applied or turn off switch. Will lift over 1000 lbs. Have a extra hydro trans to go with. I build stuff like this to keep me entertained through the winter.
Looking for Sirius offers
Possible trade for fixer up dozer or tractor run it past me will see.

Darn nice job. Not sure I would lift 1000 lbs, but whatever. I love the roll-over and the extra top bar to "assist" in getting on I bet!  Neat idea, more tractors need one of those bars now that I'm older, ha!  I would love to see a drawing and pix of those tracks and design.  Looks a bit tight of a turn in front, but if it works w/out big wear, guess OK. Someone write him and ask about some info on them.

Looks kinda neat but I think I would want a counter weight on the back before I tryed to lift 1000 lbs.Looks like it might be a bit light in the rear.

But over all it looks like a good job.

I was thinking the same thing. Even with the long tracks it just looks like it would be unstable lifting a lot of weight without something on the back to counter balance.
