My grandpa made a living with a 350 and a 450 JD dozer. They’re the best dozer made if you ask him.

for a medium loader they are hard to beat  but if I were going out tomorrow to buy another loader  I`d go looking for a nice 955l cat

Question, if you were to hit a stump (or whatever) what would keep it from flopping back besides the top of bucket? Guess I’m asking do you need a stop of some sort? Since no driveshaft doesn’t matter other than snapping cable or clamp or chain? 

From looks of gearbox and frame looks like like a bush hog brand? They are tough

right on it is a bushhog brand from about 1954 . as for it flipping  back  don`t think the crawler will be moving fast enough to have that happen . there aren`t any stumps where I plan to use it
