Hello all,
Im considering on trading my Ford 801 select o speed with a loader on it for an old dozer that needs work or been sitting for years. The 801 needs the carb cleaned and other wise runs well. I have seen several old dozers sell for $1500 or so, pretty much just to get rid of them. Is the 801 worth $1500 or is that too high. As I said it runs well, transmission is an updated select o speed with no issues and a heavy duty trip bucket loader. fair trade or not?

Yea, Im drawn to the old ones and one day I may regret it. I dont know much about them, besides the cat had a pony motor and I think the a c dozers take 2 batteries to gettem cranking. I love to wrench on the old rust but I have heard parts are tough to get. Thanks for the tip

I have 3 old Cats from the mid 50's era---It really wasn't that hard finding any parts that I needed--surprisingly Cat had a lot but used parts are quite avaiable--the cheapest machine i bought was $2100 and the most expensive was %3500

I would suspect your 801 should be worth more than that. those selecto trannys aren't popular but if yours is updated then that's a plus. location does make a difference on price. what dozer are you looking at. you need to do a research on the net on any dozer before you buy it as parts for some are really hard to find and can be very expensive. I suspect if some one has an old dozer that has been sitting for some time they probably would welcome the trade depending on what it is and the condition of it.

Be careful by what dozer you are going to buy as there is a lot out there that tracks are no longer made for,you won't get much of a dozer short of 10k if you want one that will work,the track life left on a dozer is very important and they are often worn out and are the reason why the dozer is for sale,you need an experienced man that knows dozers to check one out for you,this thing about buying a machine that needs fixing up can be a big expensive mistake, parts are so dear if you can find them,if it's that easy and cheap to fix em up the seller would have done it so he could get more for it so he thinks it's uneconomical to do it up that's why he's selling his trouble,buy a machine that's ready for work not not ready to scrap,buy a decent dozer that will do the job for you and you can sell it on when you no longer need it,my 2 cents worth.

Find and make friends with an old crawler operator/mechanic. Have him look over any machine you're interested in, then buy him and his wife a real nice steak dinner for his advice. It will be the best money you ever spent (if you follow his advice).

I agree, but theres not many old timer operators around where I am. Most the ones I know wouldnt get in a piece of equipment that didnt have air. An they dont do the mechanic side, just wanna brag that they can run anything better then the last or next guy. Im fairly knowledgeable of the old stuff and the internet is very helpful. Thanks for your tip!

Very nice, I really like the D4 cats and it seems to be in my trading or price range. The wide tracks and overall machine fits my interest. Congrats on yours!
