to China in little pieces :(

This crawler was sold to a scrap dealer in Victoria, B.C., Canada. Somone saw it on its way to the shredder and pulled it out, agreed to buy it and then never came back. Current price is $1200. CAN ($1000. US). Body work was reportedly perfect when it arrived, but has been banged up a bit obviously. There is at least one spare cleat in the footwell (the one off the track probably). Can't find a plate on it anywhere. No history or condition info, but tracks and sprockets look OK.

Weighs 3.89 tons.

PM if seriously interested and I'll provide contact info.

That's a TD6-looks just like mine, maybe better shape than mine was when I got it...somebody should snag it for a parts tractor if nothin else. The winch is prob. worth a few bucks, you don't see that many w/a winch. The head is prob. cracked, you can almost figure on that. It's WAY too far for me, there's a big crawler salvage yard in Spokane, maybe he'd want it...

Just looked at the rest of the pics-it's a wide tread, which is more desirable...the grousers are good shape. I bet you could get it for $?/ton-scrap price...

I thought the TD6 was a six cylinder?
Nope-the only one of the original TD series that was 6 cyl. was the TD-18. The TD6,9, & 14 were all 4-cyl., gas start Diesels. The later TD6-61 series did have a 6 cyl. There was never a TD4, to my knowledge.
My Dad's TD6 was the first vehicle of any kind I drove. Started walking it down the road when I was about 6...it was a few years before he let me drop the blade...

Hey Robert, FWIW, the serial# plate should be on the firewall, right side, just below the gauges. You can see it when you're sitting in the seat. I have the ser.# list somewhere if you want to know the year...

Did anyone ever save the poor old td6?

BTW, ronm, the T6-61 had the 4 cylinder C264 like the super M had, (I have a T6-61), and the TD-6 used the same engine as the SMD. The TD6-62 was the 6 cylinder model. Shooting from the hip with a poor memory, I think they were produced from '59 to '69 but only 3-4 Thousand tractors were produced.

Rick,

Man, another ancient thread revived...;) I have no idea if it was saved, with the direction scrap prices took since then, I sorta doubt it. Yeah, I've seen a 61 series & should have remembered it-they had the square air cleaner & the offset shift lever? I stood on my head for a couple days changing out the reverse idler gear on that one....I know it's not fair, but I just don't consider a TD w/o the gas-start engine to be a "real" one...:D
