Picked up a nice running UV-549 last summer at an auction for $250.

I realize that is like comparing apples & oranges, but might be an idea.

Have a good one.

Thanks Guys! For clarification I'm not looking to sell..... I'm looking to buy the Mother of All Dual Stackers -- A UD-24 Power Unit! This one even has the clutch handle thingy! I found the first one in Colorado on eBay. It has a low serial number in the 600s -- possibly the earliest UD-24 survivor known... or so I'm told.

After reading and re-reading an earlier post by Sawmill about TD-24's and the realistic expenses involved with the bigger crawlers -- I thought it best to pull in my horns and stay with my TD-6 for the time being. Also it helps to have access to a shop with a heavy equipment mechanic and the necessary tools. The power units are compact, make the right noises, but you don't have all the other stuff to maintain. The biggest drawback is you can't drive 'em around!

CC are you ready to part with that pump yet -- I've been saving!

Thanks,

RedTracks

If you like old IH power units,The sawmill sites are full of them.

They go from come haul it off to less than a $1,000.00 for a

good running unit.

Jon,

Any more miles and the OTHER tire will blow! :lol: Glad you made it home safely, that's the main thing! Glad to hear you're getting an 817 engine so another TD-25 may live!

Mainly what this is all about is that a person (not Steve) from the state just south of you said he would ask at least $5,000 for this yellow UD-24 power unit :ph34r: (Note that he didn't say what he would pay for it. :P )

That opinion was then used as leverage on the buyer to "sweeten the deal". Most of us here believe IH is gold, but paying gold prices can have a chilling effect on negotiations. One of the best parts is the "feeling" that we are getting a bargain. :) So, I reasonably sought advice and second opinion counsel from this board to get a read on the "value".

The simple answer is -- it's worth whatever the buyer is willing to pay. However, to put it all in perspective, the person with the "opinion" that the yellow UD-24 is worth $5,000 should take a good look that nice (exceptional) gear drive, cable dozer, TD-24 "up north". Then, make a convincing argument for choosing the UD-24 over the TD-24 that would also include 250 miles of over the road transportation to my brother's place for the same money.

Thanks -- I feel better now!

Red Tracks , I laugh as I read thr $5000 bit , Had a guy stop by my shop and seen I had a bunch of IH dozers . He had a TD 18 that hadn't ran in 20 years and was thinking I could use it . So I was dumb enough to ask how much , he said he thought he could let it go for around $20,000 :lol::ph34r:
