    Anybody have any experience with these or a similar size struck dozer? I found this one facebook and im debating picking it up to use for skidding short logs out of the woods and yards and close to the truck so i can buck them into firewood sized chunks. This is a Laytrac built in Seattle in the 50's. Has a 3 speed trans with reverse, 10 hp clinton motor. Weighs around 1k lbs. From the very limited information i can find they are rated around 1200-1500 lbs of draw bar pulling weight. Anyone have experience with them?

    Don't know a thing about it or have a need for it, but I would buy it anyway!

    Yeah, really cool, how much do they want for it?

    Just goes to show you could build your own mini skid.

    Struck still markets DIY kits for these things. They look like a ton of fun to me, even if they won't do anything my tractor can also do.

    I thought they came fully built now? I almost bought a new one before buying my L3800 Kubota. Struck set me up with a customer about an hour away to test out one. It had the loader and backhoe attachment. A kit would be cool.

    I'm a huge fan of miniature heavy machinery. Doesn't Komatsu sell a truly downsized version of their dozer in non-western countries?

    Cool find! Sounds like you really need a mini skid steer / stand on track loader, though!

    Depends on what they are asking for it. Looks like a fairly useful machine.
