So, I have the need to own a Bull Dozer. (who doesn't)
With a combo of trade and cash i am looking at a International T9 Dozer 1950???? This is a full gasser not a gas over diesel.
Anyone know much about these?
Rebuilt engine, working running gear, some spares, etc.

What is it worth?
They built parts of America with this kind of stuff....
Should be good enough to move the barn foundation etc.
It has a 4 way hough bucket loader.

Barn stones etc stacked into piles = Wheelin' in the yard:D

No Dozer forum so I posted here to see what info the coalition has:p

you sure about the motor being a full gasser? my old man has a TD9 Ih dozer that has a carb and magneto, it starts on gas then you kick it over on the diesel, and let the smoke rings blow, till it gets warmed. he bought it about 10 years ago for around 3500 bucks. I used it to make that back at least ten fold. His has just a straight hydraulic blade on it, nothing fancy. But we haven't done anything to it except regular maintence and swap the magneto for a regular distrubitor out of newer IH tractor.
but its been prefect for farm use, i've dug 3 ponds, built one bridge, cleaned miles of fence rows over the year, and crushed several cars. :D

better test-run it before you buy it. main issues that are more

costly to fis are sticking steering clutches, worn clutch plates,

etc. You do not want to own this if/when it needs to be

seperated and repaired.. $$$

(personally I'd rather own a CAT)

As far as steering clutches etc go...
Everything is in good working order.
A friend of mine owns it now and he got it from another friend who had the engine rebuilt and then was afraid to run it cuz it would run hot after very little work.
Seems that if you put the fan on backwards cooling is not what it should be:D
It has worked well for a few years and my buddy is a little gun shy cuz he broke a track going up hill backwards and turning with a bucket full of dirt (about a ton).
The track that broke had a known crack and that is where it broke.
Now has a new/used track and the broken one as spare.

I'm looking at about $3000 or less for this rig.

Yes, it is a full gasser. i know about the diesel/gas rigs.
this is the same rig but no diesel.

Dozer or loader????

Well, the chassis is the same on either I think.
Dozer or loader depends on blade attachment for this rig?

Has a Hough bucket not a blade.
but, most/many had a blade I think.

He says that it has a huge counter weight in the back.

I'm waiting on the video of it in action.

It is about two hours from me.

id check in to it runnin hot.. there blades are meant to be able to be turned around.. heat in the winter for operator..
as far if its got weights in the back its a loader type.. most likely with pony motor.. to start the diesel. check the adujustment on the steerin clutchs.. check the final drivers.. run in back and forth for bout 45 mins ..then feel the under side of the track round the rollers.. inner and outter side..
see if theres good lubrication.. no parts getttin hot.. that will show weak points.. do a lot of turns.. on hills pivot turns.. if theres a any kind of jerking .. then ur lookin at a problem with the final drive.. and thats costly.. check the groser pads.. check the hydro pumps.. seals rings.. etc..drop the belly pan if possible.. geta good look at the bottom of the motor.. etc.. find out what kind of parts are availabe b4 buying. may be a good deal.. but with parts hard to find and high dollar.. may be not such a good deal.... if ur looking for a dozer .. or loader .. theres plenty out there.. just becareful with what ya get..

payton..
