350 weighs about 9000 lbs....450 about 14,500...look at undercarriage on both or with any crawler...check reverser operation on 350....shouldnt slip at all....true for the steering clutches also....also look for cracked side frames on the 450 where they bolt to steering clutch housing...missing/broken bolts at side frame to bellhousing joint...cracks on dozer "C" frame at welds...under C frame also...check HLR transmission for slippage...should spin tracks under a load...not just sit there like its got a torque converter...water in oil...oil in water on both....good luck...

Thanks Jonathan. I was going to see the 450c tomorrow, but when i called the guy he said he had started it up to service it and get it ready to work and it didn't run very well. He said he thinks it has a stuck valve so he is sending the head to shop for valve job and checking the rings and cylinder bores and make sure the rings are not stuck. He said i need to wait a few days until he gets it back togeather..

I agree now is the time to take a look see, and now you can see all better, also I would find what shop it was sent to and make a casual stop in and talk to mech. on duty working on head to see what his firsr impression is about the condition of the head and motor before I let him know I was interested in purchasing the machine.
shoot him a line of bull like I have the same machine what causes this so I can watch for it, most mechs. will be glade to tell you in great detail what the damage is or caused from until they now they are messing up a sale. I have found a lot of info on machines, sometimes my own useing this method at the shop.
