I have been looking for a tractor with blade or bucket to do some landscaping stump removal.  The garden tractors just are not big enough.  

 

Found and old bull dozer.    At around 6,000 lbs with 9 ft blade its not garden tractor size.  If the plate on it is accurate its an old Amercian Tractor Equipment Corp crawler, Case bought them out in mid 60's.  However I can not seem to find model # when I search.  It has been repowered with a inline 6 ford motor, rad and grill from a versatile swather. Has set of hydralics at the back as well as PTO. I guess the gentleman who did the repower passed away before he had all the kinks worked out of it and it has sat for 4 or 5 years.   It may turn out to be a oversized paper weight, I will find out when I get it home next week.  

 

!st challenge is getting it home.  I need to find  heavey enough trailer wide enough to get this beast onto.  C frame for blade is about 8 1/2 ft.

The GMC truck sitting next to it looks real interesting to me. Good luck with the dozer, looks like a real project.

That is super cool. First, that looks like a 6 (or more) ton machine not 3 tons. Second, those track pads look brand new(big bucks). Are the chains in new condition too? Third, find a way to lift and hold the blade up. Dragging a blade can be a big pain. A couple of comealongs along the hydraulic cylinders may be able to pick it up. Fourth, when you get it home cover it and find the manuals for it.

When you get it running and learn to use it, you will have alot of fun. After you have completed a couple of projects with it, you will wonder how you lived without it. Good Luck, Rick

Looks like a lot of fun and will be fun to follow!  I want a dozer but I want one even smaller.

 

Oh, when will you start a thread on "How to relieve back pain from lifting heavy steel"?! :D

He started the GMC. 6 cyl runs like a top hoist works.  Sweet old truck.

Yes the pads tacks, chains, rollers and rails are in great condition.  He says he can move it around with his skid steer pretty easy.  There is lot of steel there you could be right at + 10,000 lbs.  I think a D2 cat with blade is around 10,000 and this looks to be as big or bigger.  Never thought of come alongs on the cylinders.

Instead of possibly tearing up come-alongs, have the guy lift the blade with his skid steer, then chain each side at the cylinders.  That's a heck of a weight/leverage to overcome with come-alongs.  I'd guess the unit to weigh at least 8 grand.
