So it DID pencil out???
The math worked?
Just wondering, how long did it take for CAT to return it back completed? If you already stated sorry, long day might have read fast.
I think it was something like 4 months, now the truck in the pictures wasn't even running when it left, engine wasn't salvageable. I think they used a couple 980H's to position it on the float to move it. Truck came back with a new serial number and was under full warranty like a new one. Both trucks will be hauling to a primary crusher once snow goes off.
Thanks for sharing, neat stuff....
I would love to have my 70’s Cat loaders overhauled like that. Then they would be all set for another 50 years of service. My only request would be is to make the cab as luxurious And comfortable as newer loader, keep everything else ol skool and simple
Just picked up another old Deere 644c from an auction at a bargain basement price
About two or three years ago they sold an old CAT 950 (1971 year I think) to a fella about an our away. Nothing wrong with it, spent many many years with a shoulder spreader on it. The new owner stripped it down in his shop and rebuilt it frame up himself with paint and decals. I never seen it but a couple mechanics at work said it turned out very nice.
Shoot Seneca stone and Hansen are still using old Euclid that Fred Flintstone operated. There not on the front line but been rebuilt numerous times and still in use for when super busy or backup.
Ya and you don't need to mechanics and a service truck full of electronic stuff to get them running in the morning.
Frame up on a early 950 still has good resale to the right buyer. A shoulder machine spreader is relativity easy work for a 950.
Nope, just bubble gum, duct tape and plenty of 5 gallon buckets of fluids
