101 net HP? 101 is close to the cubic inches of the engine.

Hey Big bad,
The old 440 was a good small dozer. You have to remember their getting around 55-years old. Check the bottom out well. You can drop a lot of money on rollers, idlers, sprockets and chains if their shot. check the reverser to if it has one. Good Luck!
John

You really have to check the under carriage good. Chains, sprockets, rollers, pins and bushing are expensive to replace and on that old of a dozer can be hard to find. If you don't know what you are looking for take someone with who knows about these things.

For what you want to do a TLB or skid steer would work too. Like with a skid steer the 440 will take some time. Me, given your options, I'd buy a dozer if I could! I love em. But unless you are looking for a toy besides a worker it may not be your best option.

That must be one of the rebuilds that includes a turbo, intercooler and regenerative ETD pack with TA kilowatt amplifier......
