TD 18 Dozer

Found a TD 18 Dozer from the early 60's. Has a big 6 that starts on gas then switched over to Deisel. Engine runs pretty well, but hasen't run in about 2 years. Antifreeze has been kept good. It has a large blade that functions well, and a huge pto winch. Also has a canopy over the driver. It does not move, however, as I was told that the pinion or spur gear is bad. I don't know what to do about it, and I was wondering how much it would cost to fix, or what was the value of it the way it sat. I figure the motor running ought to be worth something....it only weighs about 40,000 lbs, and I can't move it. Guys help me! AC

Tell me a little more about it, is the blade cable operated or hydraulic? If the blade is hydraulic, are the cylinders mounted on either side of the radiator or over the tracks? I could certainly be wrong, but I think the last TD 18 was built in 1957 (182 series). Mine is an ex Army Corps of Engineers tractor, and has a large Carco winch on the rear and had a front mount cable unit for the blade. I have since converted to hydraulic, and just recently suffered a catastrophic steering clutch failure. It'll probably be sprig before I find all the parts.

Donj't know much else about it. It is a cable driven blade.

up here in the great white north, they were the best machine in the 1950's for winter sleigh freight, they would out pull the d6 9u and were better in the snow. they are a very nice machaine and there are still good parts machines around. with the internet you can find parts for anything.

Hi, AC. The first model of TD18 was almost notorious for its weak back end and the second series was not a lot better. This is a pity because, other than that, they were not a bad tractor -- or 'dozer. I'd investigate that pinion, spur gear, et al a little more before parting with any major dollars. I have no idea of parts availalbility over your way. Here in Australia, aside from increasingly rare parting out sources, parts are like hen's teeth and rocking horse manure. The weight you quoted is fairly close. They were around 17 tons with a cable angling dozer blade. Since I live DownUnder, I can't be of much help to you for transport. Hope this helps. You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
