    Are they giving you the dozer or the Kudzu.LOL

    Looks like a D4 size Cat. I think I would look it over pretty good before I decide to accept this gift. Nothing cheap to fix on one of those machines. Still with the price of scrap steel the machine is still worth something.

    going out on a limb here but I believe the machine is a loader instead of a dozer.

    On what it is and what kinda shape its in.. I could go further and say, where is it, and how much history is known about it.. USUALLY people don't just leave a good dozer just sitting around to be a trellis...

    I think it is a Cat D4 circa 1965 maybe. The story goes that a company was building the road parked it there and left it. 10 years later they went out of business (1978). It is considered abandoned and ownership defaults to the land owners. It is mine if I want it.
