I grew up in GA and in the early 80s when I was a kid these were on every construction site around. I saw less and less track loaders at all till now seeing one is a rarity, and a 450 like this would be a really rare site.

Forgot to mention, get some ripper teeth for your bucket if you're planning to clear land. It really makes a difference in digging hard soil and you can scarify by back dragging. Will also help dig into slag piles if you're planning to build roads or a driveway.

I think the hole machine look great because you can do about any thing with this dozer/loader/backhoe.

Hey there, I am in the middle of purchasing my second 450, this time a 450B but this one has a backhoe, like yours... Do you know the weight of this configuration? Trying to buy a trailer to haul from site to site and need to make sure I'm buying enough trailer to be legal and not overloaded. Thanks! enjoying your channel.

If u didn't know it. That loader has a guide on the right side .it's your leveler. For the bucket to show u that the bucket is level as u dig across the field.

Make sure the gages stay true. Check that glass globe on the side. That you're window for your hydraulic fluid. Never let it run out of fuel. It's a pain to bleed. Or prime. As they say

My grandpa drove one too. We even have the old key fob from the ignition key.

U can get different size buckets for both ends. If your digging a small ditch or a hole

This is a great machine. I ran this model (an early 80's one) without the backhoe. It was a great machine, powerful, well balanced, dependable. I loved it. I don't understand the slow comment; it's a dozer - you're not going to win a NASCAR race. You are absolutely right on about the terrain you are working. I operated rubber tire back hoes too and the track machine is much much better for where you are. And it's a John Deere; you keep it going strong forever. You made a great choice! Good luck with it

I had an early 70's 450 without the backhoe attachment. What a powerhouse! However, if you think getting a 15000 lb machine unstuck is going to be easy, you'll have a rude awakening. I got bogged down in mud once and threw a track. A CAT 977 (47000 lbs) could barely pull me out. I'm just lucky it was on site. You'll have fun knocking down some trees with that machine.
