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
Saw two of these, and an older Dresser at the Lewis University airport today. I didn't get a picture of the Dresser, since it went off plowing. These are still used routinely.
W series case are awesome machines. Use them in the log yards around here

Mass, Probably not to far from you if it's a steal.
She’s a big girl, too big for my needs, and too big to try to resell
I thought I always heard in the locker room that big girls need love too.
My oldest machine is a 624G. It got a complete out of frame rebuild on the engine this year. I got a couple hours of seat time last week and it still purrs right along.
This is correct, big women need loving too.Here is a single one for you. Lol
The G series Deere’s are worth fixing and hanging on too. 20 years from now you won’t be seeing any Deere J and K series loaders plowing snow because it will cost too much keeping all of the electronics and tier 4 bs functioning correctly.
