Hi, I've never posted on this forum before. Usually on the combine page.
Anyway, I've been thinking about looking for an older Cat dozer for use and also collector value.
I've got a smaller grove that I plan to take down someday; and also a property with about 40 acres of woods between a couple lakes. Eventually plan to make a road out there and just would have use for a dozer now and then.
I know it would probably be cheaper to just hire what I need done, but that's not really the issue.
Just like to tinker with that sort of stuff, and when I have an idea I like to do it myself.
So anyway what would be a good older Cat to look for. Want to stay with the Cat brand. Thinking D4, but wouldn't be scared of a D8 either.
What are some things to look for? What years were signifigant improvements made?
I'm familiar with running and hauling bigger equipment, as my passion is collecting old combines; so size doesn't scare me. Just like to get informed before doing something.
