    Went and picked up the CT450 today to get it ready to take to the Cat dealer next week. My new Cat is supposed to be here Tues. I'm having a hard time sleeping at night.

    I hate pulling an 1845 with our Isuzu NPR's.

    I won't pull the 580 with the DT 466 International dump, not enough truck.

    I see people pulling D3/450 dozers behind F250's and such. Scary.

    How does it tow?

    Holy Cr*p! an older F150 and a 450CT?!?!? Does that 450 not tip the scale at around 10,000+ lbs? I could maybe see a new F150 and the occ. tow of that 450 but you are well past the rating of the truck.

    It would need nuclear power to move and 100% fire/heat resistant brakes to stop the truck. You must eat brake pads for lunch each time you move that thing.

    I wouldnt put a 450 behind my 2500hd chevy!! I hate putting the 335 behind it but it says it can pull it so it is goin to pull it.. But man!!

    There are guys here that pull fullsize backhoes with freakn f350's! I have even seen a guy put a D3 behind a f350 on a 10 ton gooseneck.. Okay I am sure it would have pulled it ok with a little struggle, or enough to get by for one move or two a month.. but this guy put the dozer slam on the nose of the trailer with a chain, with no binder, ran throught the hitch thing on the back. The chain was way to long and if it was it wouldnt have done anything because he had the blade slammed up against the neck of the trailer!

    freakn fly by night clearing and grading companies!! will haul anything on a f350!
