Buy the TD-6 if: A) you really want one, or B) you can steal it. You're looking at two high-cost items, a D-264 (saw a re-man head within the last six months for 1100.00) and a set of rails. However, if there is something odd about it, wide-gauge tracks for example, it would be worth the trouble.

Just the blade? Well, there's more iron in a Bucyrus-Erie blade than in an International blade, but I would guess the weight to be in the 1800-2500 pound range, with the push arms.

Heck I have had several. It probably is the head, but that is just the beginning. those machines can be a money pit. How long was it run hot and what other damage did that do. $1100 is just a jumping off point. You can easily put $5000 in it and then you will have a $3000 machine.
