Ray...re the "jack under the grouser''   bit......when I pulled the clutch 's out of my old "B".....tried that "normal ' method, but gave up because it was winter here.....and the ten ton bottle jack and timber block would dissapear   into the soft turf......hence kept the old girl running.....

Problem that you possibly would not encounter  in your  more arid climate....??

Mike,

There is always the option of a chain hoist or similar.  Hooked from a track pad to suitable anchorage on the machine the ground conditions are not a factor.

 I would have a hard time working without mine.

Well not this year anyway. But have had everything from 60+ to 8 inches in a year, but generally only have rain from Oct to April. Some sticky clay will never let you down, sticks  so bad wheels will grow until they have no room to turn.  Other place as the old times put it "a saddle blanket would sink".

I did not think about who had posted that, as it is easy to see you have common sense. Many that ask about such are new to "pig iron" and have not a clue, and I worry I could save them much trouble and their live in some case with a bit of information.

Got my eye on this one. 

Figure if I let the missus man the "50" to keep the rabbits out of her garden, she'd let me have it??

Three more months until Marvin Day.

Locally there is a fellow that absolutely worships him.  I did some dozer work for him and the “striped whistlers” (old fellows at the diner)  saw the dozer there at his place and thought that he had started to go sideways.

I was glad to get my dozer back from there!!

It's a plow,  started out with a Buckeye half track wheel machine to do my own tile projects. My boy got interested and started doing small jobs for neighbors, then upgraded to a Buckeye Super D. Got busier and purchased the plow for system tile projects and use a DynaPac 2400 trencher instead of Super D . Started this 9 years ago and now evolved into a full time business.

Dozer that I saw the other day.

 

It was so much nicer than anything that I DREAM of....

Looks like a machine for a landfill.

I concur.

The bar on the back to keep trash from climbing up the tracks was what clued me in.

Quite the blade for a 6.

FIL hauled into the local landfill for a while with a rolloff truck, got to know the guys working.  They ran something like a D6, they called it the "Maggot Masher."  It had the wide tracks and brush blade.

One of tge last dinosaurs my company has left. The d8r left last spring. That 9n is our old landfill dozer. Was replaced by a newer d8. Now it goes to jobsites to rip frost and some heavy hogging on firm ground. 9's are not for mud! I ran the old cat for a day on a 10million yard job for a costco distribution center outside owatonna,MN. 20200624_102819.thumb.jpg.e5a251e07a4424807b687d46bc61ec7e.jpg

I'm new here but I've enjoyed reading for a long time. I thought people might enjoy seeing how logging used to be done. Sorry for the yellow. 1963 Cat with older Hyster sulky. I'm from Maine.

Interesting.  Locally those are called “skidding arches”.

I have always been amazed at how different terminology evolves regionally.

As a follow up. Sulky is its given name from Hyster. Hyster called the larger ones arches. I may be the only one around here who calls it a sulky, for that matter it is probably the only one in captivity in this area.
