Buying a big track loader

Buying a Caterpillar 977 crawler loader from an auction, trucking it home, and operating it for a few hours digging into a rocky hill side.




  • Slick tracks?

  • Never really seen to much of tracked loaders in action, they look pretty useless, and seem to have less traction than the wheel loaders, cos you can't put weight on the front idoler to increase traction like you can over the front wheels with a wheel loader when digging into the material. Not sold on the tracked loader!

  • That's a beast! I think they sold it because it needs new tracks. Or maybe you can weld on some new treads.

  • Financially, I think Andrew is in MUCH better shape then we can imagine. If he owns a piece of equipment and it breaks, he fixes it in short order. Most of the used equipment he buys was probably sold by its owner for lack of funds to repair it properly. Andrew has access to these funds.

  • Hello Andrew, you have bought a very good machine in the 977K. I saw many of these in action when I was a young cat mechanic in the 1970's. It has an engine and transmission that are perfectly matched for hard work. Its not often that you see a fully enclosed cab on this model, a very good option. Just remember that digging in solid rock will shorten the life of any machine. I will be following you now and look forward to more videos of this machine. Thanks!

    • The cost of a lowboy for a short local move is at least $500 ... then it has to be moved back home another $500. It really isn't practical or economical to have your own motor tractor and lowboy unless you are trucking every day, the cost of insurance and registration is just crazy.

I'm ordering one but I won't have it delivered until after August so I'd be interested to see if you could get some use out of it. Even if it breaks down I'm sure you could Jerry rig it. I ordered the 25hp diesel model, 4400 lbs ride on tandem vibratory.
