If you"re working it, it would have to be the Cat, regardless of the condition, from the parts standpoint alone. Whole lot easier to find a Cat dealer than a Fiat-Allis dealer. (if the stuff is even available)

When I say Working - I dont mean heavy work - I have 110 acres of land with timber planted after Hurricane Katrina - need to reclear roads and areas where it has grown up. Also need to clear a spot for new building. Probably won't see 50 to 100 hours a year.

I really like the AC line - have a HD6B - but it has steering clutch issues. I'm leaning to spending a bit more and getting the Cat D5. Seem to be a lot of them in the late 60's early 70's vintage in the 10-15k range, so parts should be available if i need them. Is $10-15k a reasonable range for a good machine?

Even found 1 advertised on Machinery Trader for $8200 (about same as the HD11B I was looking at). Anyone know anything about that dozer / close to Lees Summit, MO http://www.machinerytrader.com/listingsdetail/detail.aspx?OHID=8596347&.

Probably still cheaper at $11k locally by the time you figure hauling 600 miles. Anything specific to look for on D5.

Thanks again. Ed

Don't buy based solely on price. A dozer with 75% undercarriage and everything works properly is a better buy at 11 or $12,000 than a dozer needing undercarriage and other repairs at $8000. Take someone with you that knows cats before you buy.
