Looking at buying a 450 case crawler loader to clear a little land on my farm. Don"t know anything about them. Good loader for small jobs? Give much trouble? Said foot pedals don"t work looks like that is pretty important part? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The pedals are R & L brakes. They should work.
After you are used to the machine you can get by w/o them... unless you need them in an emergency situation. The brakes are almost inaccessible, the master and/or slave cyls are probably the problem. but there down in there too.

I have the diesel w/the backhoe. I have finished my clearing and building pad. Love this machine, it runs great and is simple to operate. Even Carol has driven it, when I was picking up Manzanita root/stumps.

Mine has the 4 in 1 bucket with ?ripper? teeth. I am able to use these teeth as a root rake.

Also because of our terrain, I welded grouser bars onto the track pads.
I am still a rookie. And I didn't catch the mediocre condition of the undercarriage.when I bought it. If and when, and before you buy, consider having someone who knows, l(if you don't), look at the condition of the undercarriage. I replaced all of mine. I did it myself and enjoyed the experience, to the tune of $5500.00.

have fun....sl
