That thing looks pretty good for its age - someone took care of it during its working life and they did a good job making the ROPS for it as well.

Looks to be in good condition for sure.

How would this machine rank in Cat terms? It looks really big on the trailer.

Had a small OC-46 Oliver dozer years ago and had a little time on a cable D7.

I would guess it to be comparable to an D8 or a D9, thats a monster of a dozer.

Nice picture. Thanks for posting. A D7G is 44,600#. I don't think our local DOT would like the way it's chained.

CCHAINS USED ON MOVE WERE 13mm TRANSPORT CHAIN WITH GRAB HOOKS RATED LOAD 6.7 TON EACH WITH RATCHET TURN BUCKLES

MACHINE SAT ON TIMBER DECKING

8 CHAINS USED GIVING LASHING CAPACITY ALONE OF 53.6 TON WITHOUT TAKING INTO ACCOUNT FRICTION

CHAIN POSITIONS 2 ON BLADE

2 ON TOW HITCH

4 ON MACHINE CROSS PULLED

I THINK THAT WAS ENOUGH BETTER TO BE ON SAFE SIDE EASER TO PUT MORE ON THAN PICK UP OFF SIDE OFF ROAD

hard to say with them old machines every one questimates weight but its best to weight them that way if you get pulled up at least you know your weights

over here we get 6 ton on steer / 16.5 on drive / 16.5 on boogie / 20 on tri but if you pay $74 p/a for a permit they let you put on a few more ton that machine went shade uder 24 ton dont know what model number just the brand

Would you describe that dozer as being "SMICK"? I still can't get anyone on here to tell me what that means..........

Olive, Don't you speak English?

I try and speak the local dialect, but da wife won't let me. She had some weird idea that we should use proper english in the home. She gave "SMICK" a big thumbs down.

After getting her expert opinion on SMICK, I then got caught licking my knife and of course the kiddos started to copy it. I had to lick it, who wants the ketchup off scrambled eggs on your pancakes?

Wife took away my syrup privileges..
