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.

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.

Watch those track seals on a 977, tight turns will blow them out and tracks will get real loose.

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!

Can’t wait until Andrew get a flat bed for himself. Diesel creek bought a military 5th wheel form the 60s. Would be an amazing addition if you could find one at action for yourself.

the key is to TILT back as you move forward, not lift a tilted bucket as you move forward.

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.

You should buy one of those chinese tandem rollers off alibaba... 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.

How will you get the 977 to the job site? None of your trailers can handle 25 tons ...or can they? Can the larger 10 wheel dump truck haul something this heavy and a big trailer?

nice machine. wanna get that crowd action going earlier so you push the teeth as much directly toward the mounted orientation as possible. start breaking those teeth off and repairing them, you'll catch my drift! also would help to blast some light charges into the hillside and loosen the spoil up? working smarter instead of harder. genuinely don't want rock and soil flying through the air around there !

K G 25 dagen geleden
I don't know much about heavy equipment, but I just feel that the 955 would be a better choice because of the fact that it's half the weight of the 977 which would make it easier to transport around. You also summed up at the end what I thought when you put them side-by-side; the scoop is bigger, but not a big difference. The jobs you take on makes the 955 the perfect size when you need something more than a skid-steer.
