Lets see your oldie but goodies......
Old School loaders.... still working hard.
i have a 79 910cat, i picked it up this year, it had a rebuilt engine and tranny, and most of the hydraulics, i can't wait to see how it does snow, i well post pics soon, say that is a nice looking Case, have you ever had a problem with tipping on it, i debated buying one, but was told it was pretty unstable.
First year plowing with it.... going to run a 12 footer... i think i should have gotten a 14.
I use to spend some time in a 1966 966B model cat. It was a back up loader where I worked and I ran it a few times when my 966Fseries II was down for service. I hated spending more than 8or 9 hours in it at a time but it was a cool old rig and It had at least as much power as my F model. I will try to find some pics tomorrow. I love old loaders.
a company by me has one they plow the local home cheapo with it
i got some pics of my 910 CAT up, this is my first year plowing with something other then a tractor or skidsteer
good looking old rig.
Pics please! My neighbor has an old loader, if I recal its also a 1966 but I can never correctly identify it, it would be great to have something to compare to.
i am looking right now lol, it was a cool old rig. Was a old logging loader, had cages over all the windows and radiator, pretty cool
Aww, the memories. Sure have came a long way in technology. I can remember my first introduction to the cat. Was a old 950, ran it, made a mess and nobody told me how to shut it down. We sure had alot of fun in them days tho.
more pics........ enjoy...
By the way, those are some nice, clean looking machines to.
lmao, nobody told me how to shut it down either, i have run machines before, john deere, and Case, but never have i had to pull up on the gas pedal to turn a machine off, seriously though, i don't think people give enough credit to these old machines, i picked this one up for a steal, with a rebuilt engine, and rebuilt tranny, about 1000hrs on rebuilts, as you can see the machine is in really great shape, and well serve me for many hrs
Same d@mn thing that got me lol. Where I worked all the other operators were 35+ and I was the youngest operator at 19, so when they I climbed off the 966 the first day and asked how the hell to shut it off they all got a good . When they told me to pull up on the throttle I thought they were Jacking with me.
lmao, well i was a little luckier, because i was with the dealer that was selling it, he couldn't laugh too much, actually i saved a little face, because i got out and said "i know there is a switch in here to turn this off, but just in case there isn't, i think you are going to have to fix it" with a big smile on my face
Them old machines are good if takin care of. There are a few companies around that still use them here. Nothing wrong with them, just dont have all the luxuries. I just about bought a older fiat allis, but lost a bunch of work, so i backed out of it. And am sure glad now.
I just measured this up for signs this morning, the second is the one he already had. 14' pusher for the old one and 12' for the new one as it will need to travel on roads.
**I guess these aren't exactly old school.**
This was our old Cat 920. We traded it in as a down payment on an excavator and got what we paid for it 10 years later.
they may not be old school, but i am jealous, that old cat, if you don't mind me asking, what was it like to plow with, my 910 should be pretty close to the same
