In this video, I buy a ~1970 john deere dozer 450 straight. Fix the steering clutches, and install a "canopy", and then push some dirt

  • Hello Andrew you said that if you have basic experience you can do a lot but from what I have seen in. many videos I watched of you working have have much more than basics when I see that if it is mechanical you can just about do anything and if it’s electrical you don’t seem to have any problems fixing things plus you can do welding brazing mig welding operating a plasma color so you have to have a certain amount of experience in this type of work plus I watched you build your castle from containers and that is a big acheivment and you can overstate any kind of machinery and that is why I enjoy watching you work well done

  • Terrific job on the dozer. That ROPS look damn solid to me but I understand your caution. Don't forget, tho, without a seatbelt the superstructure can end up just being the thing that cuts you in half when you go over...

  • I see one bug in the job here. Please correct the shape of exhaust pipe, please never allow any rainwater to get into the pipe. This water will go straight to the engine and over time will ruin it very fast.

  • Be careful you nearly got some video in with the adverts. What a shame to many ads to watch the video

  • Me: Is John Deere? Jesse: No, this was relatively inexpensive. Me: 🤦‍♂️

  • Hi great video We just done exactly the same job on a 1952 jd420 .up in the Pacific ,niue inland we had no lifting gear to handle the tracks, we broke them on the drive sprockets.the chains didn't bounce around as much ,and then wound them back on under power, no tractor .your dozer was a lot easier with that top inspection cover. We did have the track frame to deal with, so had a totally different approach. We have many hours of work for it clearing bee sites in the jungle. The 420 only weighs 2.5 ton so move it around on Well worth saving Andy .niue honey company

  • Very nice clutch stack renewal. People should avoid off setting straight exhaust pipe.

    john bleckerjohn blecker16 kun oldin
  • and new stuff is not as good as the old as long as you can gits parts for it and it will run circles round the new that they make now. it would have been best with a drill press even a bench top drill press then you can set how deep your drilling you still can do it and just keep them if you wear out the new ones . you may wan`t to look at a Chan fall they do work better an smother more control i have one from harbor freight 1 tun $60 then 20% off $48 50.88 out the door. with it all clean an panted it will make it easier to see if you have a lick. you did a nice job it looks good an i see it works good .
