I was recently given a lead on an MC for sale. I would like to to have a small crawler to do some light grading and possibly pull a plow at plow day. The crawler has been sitting for the last three years in a barn that the guy is currently taking down. Is this crawler worth looking at and if so what should I be looking at to see if it is worth my time. I will try and upload a picture of the machine.

First off they are great and very neat little machines. I have one. There are a few things that you want to look for on it. The undercarriage is the most important thing. Make sure that the track links are not wore out. Make sure that your pins and rollers are good. Make sure there is no weird wear in the sprockets. Make sure the final clutches work well as they are a bit expensive and a pain to replace. Undercarriage is by far the most important though. It could cost $1000s to rebuild them. If it looks decent then buy it you can"t go wrong they are fun and very nice and easy to run good luck. Any questions feel free to send me a email. Jason

I have an MC and have found that the condition of the track and chain is important to examine. This is the most costly part of any crawler. I love mine, but I have spent a lot of time and money reconditioning it. They require more maintenance because of the track adjustments than other conventional tractors. Good luck!
