Anyone have a educated guess on the weight of this trackloader?

    Trying to decide the best way to move it/most cost effective.

    It's a fiat FL9

    12 ton at best, it's a tad bigger than our D-4 and it's 9 ton.

    You can move that machine on a tag trailer behind a gravel truck or you can move it on a step deck single drop trailer. I would say it will weigh a little closer to 14 ton. It is hard to tell with that small picture.

    Not many old Fat Allis machines around anymore.

    looks slightly bigger than my JD 450 track loader which weighed about 16k. It was a 60's model. Not sure if the older ones are heavier..they look heavier.

    i cant really tell from the picture as to the size but it is smaller then our 955L and that weighs 18tons....for that machine i would say a "safe" bet would be around 15 tons...those old loaders didn't go skimpy on the steel and iron in them so they can tip the scales a lot more then they look

    you would be OK to put it on a 20ton tag...we put our Liebherr 621B on a tag...which weighs a little more then a 953C and our 10wheeler Pete pulls it fine, the thing with this is all the weight is in the front as opposed to the newer loaders where most of the weight is in the rear

    Best thing to do is plan on it being heavier than what you think so I would say anywhere from 15 tons or more. It probably is less than 15 ton but better safe than sorry. One overweight ticket will make you wish you could go back and spend more with a hauling company.

    From what i can tell by the pics of the ones on machinery trader it looks pretty much the same size as our Cat 941 which is around 11 ton i belive cuz we are still leagal with it behind our single axle. So i would just figure 12 ton.

    How far do you have to move it?
