Sep 25, 2017 | 17:06 5 While we're on this subject, I need the front axle and more specifically, the centre ball and clamp ring for a cat 80 scraper. I could blacksmith on my own axle and hubs. Anyone know of a complete unit or parts in the fence line somewhere? Reply With Quote

I would think quick drain or lever from Munster(Humboldt) would have only be able to get that. Did you break it? I have a lever 80 but haven't had any trouble with it. Pretty tough unit Reply With Quote

Sep 26, 2017 | 20:14 13 If you have a big tractor a pull dozer can move a lot of dirt over a short distance. If you have to move it a long ways then a scraper might work better. I notice the construction guys use a track hoe and rock truck to move dirt any distance.

A dozer is really handy for a lot of jobs but they are slow and hard to move from job to job and the risk of getting one that has some mechanical issues

There are not many jobs that are as much fun as walking down bush with a dozer.

If budget is not an issue one of each of the above mentioned toys but if budget is limited like mine then a pull dozer might do the most. Reply With Quote
