Well, for the folks in the know to be able to help you ,you might want to post a picture or 2,or perhaps let them know if it runs, how the undercarriage is and so forth. There is conditions from Burnt and rusted on up to like new. and the value is going to swing alot between those points.

a worn undercarriage cost a hole bunch a money and time, many dozers were stopped being used for that reason, id give a little above scrap value because the engine runs...could turn into a big project...good luck...

yep, under carriage dictates price, you can easily sink more into the under carraige than another whole machine. I have two tracked machines that i bought as a pair, and didnt know what to look for got burned on one machine! 10 rollers @ $159 each, 2 track chains for $1500 along with rebuilding the grease jacks runs into $$$$$$$ and that was with doing the labor myself. not to mention if you need track pads and the bolts to put them back on and there is a bunch of them! usually 4 per pad X how many pads.

Yes, crawlers aren't for the meek. But then again they do offer the ultimate challenge! Moving a long time sitting dead one can be super challenging! For some strange reason the older I get the more of those money pits that seem to end up here, kinda like stray cats!
