    I'm starting to like it more. Got manual off eBay ,'splained a few things. Plumbed in quick connects on the loader hydraulic lines today. I can drop the loader now and run something else with the remotes. Pulled the tach drive off at the head and it's turning so its either the right angle box into the tach or the tach itself is bad.

    Yes you do. Another thing after I got the loader going is after you remove that bucket extension there's *s-word forks under there.

    I see a trend. You guys seem to like crawler loaders over dozers. I've had two dozers and I'd like a third. I can see the advantages of a loader but what's the point that seals the deal over a dozer?

    I guess that would depend on the type of work being performed. Versatility is the key, one machine does many jobs, like load a truck for instance. I pick up logs with a set of forks added to the bucket. A four in one bucket would be the ultimate, as then a guy could push grade near as good as a dozer, the one trick a regular bucket cant quite do as well/easy.

    Yes,a Drott would be ideal. The problem is everyone I look at is beat to pieces and racked so bad you could never hold grade with the thing.

    I think most of the time it is what ever you can work a deal on to get the machine ,and not preference blade over bucket.

    Couple guys I know have Cat 933's one has the four in one bucket, the other a bucket and a blade. Lots of old Iron out there sometimes just a matter of finding where it's hiding, and letting people know in your area that you're looking.

    Now a Loader crawler with a mechanical winch on the back for skidding would be very nice!
