Those forums are really good at answering those types of questions.  They have classified ads sections too.

Just make sure the tractor was meant for a loader.  If not the front end will wear out quick.  Plus find out how hard it will be to get parts there for the tractors you are looking at too.  A deal that takes 6 monthes for parts to repair is worthless. ::)

 Thanks for all the sites, guys.

  My lack of Spanish preceeds me. A tractor down here is, a BULLDOZER.  ::) ::)

  He is looking for a D5 Cat or equivalent Case or Deere John. It MUST have a good winch.

  Sorry about not remembering tractors down here are Chapuleens.  ::) ::) :) :)

Are you saying he is coming into the US? Where is he coming into? Almost everything ends up on craigslist these days. Do a "dozer" search in the main window search box. Pick the city he is closest to. I just searched Seattle and hit about 15 units. You can look at all the major markets from your desk and pre-qualify before he comes in.

 Great links guys. Thanks.

  I have been to every equipment site I could find, including those y'all posted. I'm finding most listings have no prices. Call for more info  >:( >:(

  Also, lots of the listings are auctions. I would think a direct sale would be best. Don't know offhand how soon he could book a flight from here, also???  Busy season down here.

  I realize this is a poke at finding something usefull and not too expensive.  I'm thinking we should look to the Northwest. Logging is supposed to be s l o w up there, right ???

  Also found, a new paint job has doubled the price in a lot of listings.  :o :o

  Gonna keep digging. Anybody know of something, let me know, OK ???  Thanks

Harold:

Search for Garrett Skidder. I had one- a model 15 with forks. It was small but could do about anything and used regular truck and tractor parts. I just did a quick look and came up with a few - models 21 and 15.
The ones with the forks are hard to find but the others are there and they aren't much money I don't think.

Here's one in Bend,Oregon:

  Harold, I take the paper versions of machinery trader and Heavy equipment trader, and in the NW there is an abundance of dozers in that size. If you don't mind coming this far.

 I'm concentrating on staying near the coast. Trucking overland can get expensive. Boats are not much different in cost within 500 miles of any port, to down here. ???
