News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link: http://cletrac.org/photos/

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,

I'm negotiating with a scrap dealer on a HG he bought last year when scrap was $300.00 a ton.  He wants to know roughly what it weighs before he goes to the trouble of digging it out behind a scrap pile.  He doesn't want to loose money on selling it.  It has a Chev six cyl and a nice roll cage which will I know affect weight.  Unknown mechanical cond.  the tracks look like they have lots of wear left in them.  Also would appreciate any estimates of value as is.

I would also be interested in shipping weight of Model W.  It's mostly intact.  I'm not interested in it but will put anyone interested in contact with scrap dealer.

I have photos of both but haven't figured out how to attach photos to this post.

Thanks!

Weight of Hg would be 3000 lbs, add 100lbs if a 68 width.  The Chevy will add some too, as will the roll cage.  With the Chevy being longer there may well be frame modifications as well.
Chevy could be any one of a large number of engines from a 194 to 302.  As to valve, not much as it just a parts machine!

A complete W would be 3300 lbs

The rough weight of a HG is about 3300lbs later mode OC3 weighed about 4000lbs. If it is a HG the IXA engine is a lot lighter than a six cylinder Chevy. As far as value goes it all depends on running condition witch is unknown. Since it is not running and not knowing how professional the install was on the six banger. I would say between $300 to $800. But like most things it is only worth what someone else is willing to pay.

Thanks, for getting back to me on my question about the weight.  The Chev engine is new enough to have electronic ignition.  I'm leaning towards buying this dozer and trying to get it running again.  

I'm sure it will be more fun to work on than this old 1936 Allis Chalmers Model M dozer I just crawled out from under where I'm trying to replace the clutch. I  very successfully totally fried the clutch when I chickend out climbing a short steep burm and let it roll backwards with the clutch partially engaged.  Hard lesson learned!

I have a complete running Ford diesel out of a late 50s Hubler, I may consider putting in the HG if I find out it would be a good match up.

Thanks Again for the help!

Published weight of a standard equipment W is 3418 pounds (Cletrac Specs, this websight). Where are you located ? I might be interested in the W.  Thanks.

Thanks for the info on posting photos and shipping weight.  I'm in the Western part of OR.  The yard owner has now decided he wants to keep the model W as a yard ornament.  I've made a deal with him on the HG.  It also has a nice hydraulic blade on it so I think it's worth the gamble not knowing what  kind of condition the mechanical parts are in.

On my old 1936 vintage AC M85 dozer, I found one of the individaul clutch disks had sheared off on and lodged against the flywheel,  Little wonder it wouldn't shift.  I had the pilot bearing in hand at the shop rebuilding the clutch.  I asked the counter guy if he knew of a shop where I could check the availablity of a new bearing.  He turned around and took one off of a stack of about eight on the shelf directly behind him. much to my amazement.

I'm sure i will have lots of questions for you on the HG when I get it home and have time to start working on it.

Thanks Again to all of you for your  quick and helpful responses!!!
