James, pay attention to Blain Plunkett's offer here.
I sold my same vintage 933 but a lot more hours for more and the buyer shipped it to Peru. Tough old tractors that'll get the job done.
My choice was to go to rubbertire, now running a 944 with 4 in 1 which will do everything I ask. I'm not surprised at the quotes you've gotten.
One estimate I gave for $4400 but recommended the guy call someone with a larger crawler. He told me my recommendation had already been there and wanted $20k for the same job. I about fell over. Working by the hour, I completed the driveway for $3300. He gave me a $1000 bonus.
Then had the major job of creating his house site. Which is my business plan: buy a tractor and then let a client pay for it. My 944 is far from worn out, and owes me nothing. Here, large rubbertire loaders are much cheaper than crawlers.
This is what a smaller 933 easily handled. Plenty of power. But like everybody said, know your undercarriage before purchase. Second photo was a rock that was too large for my 933, required the 944 hydraulics to budge it.
