Does anybody have any experience with the chinese "Smalldozer"? It is also sold by Northern Hydraulics. For a 40hp dozer they seem reasonably (CHEAP?) priced, but why? I plan to use it fairly rigorously on my farm for most anything.

Generally, you get just what you pay for. If you never plan to work it hard it might be just the thing. Then make sure you never work it hard. Just my opinion...........

Speaking out of pure ignorance--I've only seen the adv in Northern Hyd--I can only ask why are they cheap? It's a common-sense kind of thing. The castings are probably flakey and if something breaks where can you get parts? I bought a chinese table saw, and after I reground the table, rebuilt the arbor trunion it worked O.K.. I can't imagine the problems you might have with a crawler. I bought a junker JD350, will have about $10k total into it when I'm done, but it will be pretty much a new machine. There's a lot of old JD's and Cases around.

Thanks guys, I'd already drawn the conclusionof you get what you pay for, but was hoping to hear from someone who hat actually owned/ operated/ worked on one. For serious work I can always drag out the ol' D-6. Jeff

Jeff I recently had a bout with the little Nortrac dozers. I had a customer with one that he blew out a steering clutch so another friend of mine helped me take it out and we tried to ordfer a new one. We got it but it was a 1/2 inch out of round. finally had a clutch shop build one then a final drive gear broke. I had it tested by a friends machine shop and the gear hadnt been heat treated properly and wasnt much harder than cold rolled steel. Also he had trouble with the bottom rollers. I tried to get him to buy a grey market Komatsu for the same price but he refused a used machine. When it was over he had about 3 000 more in it not counting time lost. I think he traded in on a D21P Komatsu dozer. I dont mean to knock the little mchines but they lack alot of features I like and We had problems with the parts as they changed models.
