Good deal or not, cletrac

I was looking at this somewhere, and I was just wondering if it was a good deal for 800$? or should i MAYBE try to offer him more, if I can get it :!:

go ahead, rub it in. I've been wanting a smnall Cletrac/Oliver crawler for years, and you go and find one. :censored: whether that is a good price depends on such things as is it complete, is it stuck, etc. jsut looking at it I would say 800 is a good price. they run a little higher than cubs in comparable condition.

thanks John, I'm sorry to dissapoint you, but there are quite a few around here at local junk yards :!: Well, I think that I might get it, my parents were going to get me an ATV when they sell my great grandmothers house, so I said that this is about a quarter of the price! Thanks again, I will ask him if it's stuck or not

I think so too Scotty, but the guy won't say if it's stuck or not. He said "Just say that it's stuck, if it's not, then you already ahead of the game!" So, I hope that my parents will let me get it :!: No blade or anything, just the tractor/crawler. Wish me luck :!:

considering the picture, I would bet on stuck.

He said that the town used it for a plow, so all of the grousers were taken off and replaced with something else? So, it looks in pretty good shape besides all of the rust, Here's some pics of it

Thanks, Jostev

Well, it looks like I'm not gonna get it :cry: , I saw a post that the guy put and he sasi that the engine is porbably stuck, since the exhaust was off. So, I'll have a look at a few local junk yard for one. (hopefully for a goooood price!) See John, I didn't rub it in because I'm not getting it :!:

Image. Check it out for yourself before you give up on it. My Father-in-law had an Oliver bucket dozer years ago.. WE both still wish he had it still :!: :roll: :cry: I am looking for a nice IH TD 7/8 or smaller to use around the yard and stuff.. but so far all the ones I have seen are still going for $8,000.00 and up.... depending on condition..

Surprising how IH/Dresser keeps its value. Now that it is what Komatusu... not too sure how well that will continue... :? :!:

Thanks everybody, the only thing is that it's about 3 hours away :!: so that isn't just if it's gone, then oh well, I might be able to look at it when we go down to connecticut to visit family for Thanksgiving. My mom still isn't too sure about it, but I think that it would be cool. I know that around here I could get a stuck one for next to free or free. I will look into it if you guys think that it's a really good deal. How bad could the engine be stuck? He said that it rolls, so, I bet that it isn't all that stuck. Thanks Don, I looked a little at that the other day, but I will look into it some more. Thanks again, Johnny

Thanks, Johnny
