I am considering buying a small dozer. It is an International 500 series c with a 6 way blade. I don"t know much about Int. dozers. Can someone tell me the good and bad about this particular model? Also I need to know how much it weighs? By the way it is gas. Thanks for any help!

The good: Small, so easy to maneuver and easy on fuel. Easy to drive because of the hydraulic reverser. The bad: Like was stated, my coupler for the hydraulic pump went out as well. Dry steering clutch packs, so you have to make sure the drain holes don't clog and cause water buildup in the housings. That's pretty common, and causes frozen clutch packs. Mine's supposed to weigh about 14,000lbs with the 4-in-1 bucket, but I suspect it's a little lighter than that.

I used to have a 500c diesel. It had a torque converter and hydraulic reverser. The dogs in the front mounted hydraulic pump clutch wore thru 2 times.Check for play in the clutch. otherwise it was pretty much trouble free and easy to grade with.
I have heard that the final drive pinion nut comes loose and causes final drive problems.
