I had to figure out what the track chain size was 2.096.. Spent about 2 weeks buying half links before it dawned on me to check with Ballentine to see if they offer repair links..


Yes, they have them in stock.. LOL.. took about 3 weeks of looking and delivery to get it mobile.


After this I had it all together and drove it but the chain on the drive gear kept getting a popping sound when under load..

Turns out the mounts for the transmission was broken and the plate it's mounted to is to flexible so would flex when pressure was applied..

Welded that up to..

Have done some good skidding and dirt moving with it..

This is an interesting machine. I would guess you don't want the trencher boom as this is a cute little guy without it. Good for spreading dirt and pushing snow off the driveway.
What is the condition of the tracks, pads and rails.
They are about 3/4.. The pads or edges of the pads can be built up with hard facing if need be or maybe in the future..

New steel tracks as well as rubber tracks can be bought.

Chain pitch is very odd, will dig it up for you later.

I made some odd burnouts for the end of the boom to take up the slack.
I could send you the .dxf file if you would like.
Do you have the 200 or 300?

i won't be putting a trencher back on unless I find it super cheap.. I am modifying the unit to take a 3pt hitch and being able to mount the blade on either end.

Thanks.Wasn't bad at all. Remove the front idler and slide the track drive all the way in.. Much lighter than full sized bulldozer..

I had a regular smaller dozer 15 years ago. I forgot the make, but I I think it weighed under 5000 #. I regret selling it. It was a worn out, piece that was modified with a Ford pinto engine, that had to run too high to develop the torque it needed, but sold it after I lost interest in it.

Super handy.. This one weighs about 1900lbs.. It being hydrostatic makes a world of difference.

Means I can put in any motor I want.. the Wisconsin is really torquy..

I could use a hand finding one sized for this beasty..

12.5HP Question: If I used the trencher chain drive to power another hydraulic pump what would I be looking for?

Jen, for the horsepower available and such, I would recommend a pump between 8.5 to 10 GPM at 2000rpm and max 3600psi
You will need all the valving, tank, and pressure relief as well.

Thanks.. Just the info I was looking for.

I was planning on using the tank on the unit (share it).. Pressure relief is built into the valve I thought?

You may have a main system pressure relief and different pressures on different circuits by the valve relief.

But this is all blue sky until you have a circuit diagram.

Are you planning to adapt something like a tow behind excavator to the crawler?
Or build one from scratch?
