I have both, and both have their place, but all told the dozer with the 6way is used a lot more than the crawler loader. The crawler loader is much nicer bor brushing and grubbing stumps, but a dozer with a root rake will do almost as well.

Now not to hijak the post, but what is everyones opinion on hauling a small 350 and especially 450 behind a pickup truck. even a one ton dually I believe its way too much weight. My loader goes 11000 empty plus 3000 for the trailer. I don't even like hauling it behind the small dump.

Always believed just because it will pull it doesn't mean you should. It's stopping it that matters and electric brakes all depend on one little wire.

14,000 lb on a gooseneck with brakes is not a problem for a 1 ton. As for electric brakes, if you get a decent controller and do you checks before leaving it tells you if you are disconnected/shorted/grounded and you can judge the brake response physically too.

I'm not talking about early 80's 1 tons here but modern ones with good brakes.

Yes, I agree. My "little" Deere 1010 crawler-loader weights 11,800 lbs. and my trailer weights 3300 lbs. empty. I can pull it with my Ford F250 diesel on flat roads but I only do it for short runs. On the other hand, I can pull my Case 310G 6-way dozer and I feel OK on flat roads. Not a very big machine though.
