Scrapping a D4 7u machine
Could you guys give me an idea what a D4 with a bucket would bring for scrap? I was thinking of having a scrapper over to the farm and am curious as to the value.
Depending on what you have for attachements, you could be looking at 6 or 7 tons. I saw somebody post the other day that scrap was around $260 a ton prepped, so there you go. You could sell the blade to a collector for $750 - $1400, a winch could sell for about the same. Hydraulic pumps/lines/controls get several hundred. Motors, undercarriage, track frames/rollers all are saleable items. You could make more by parting it out. Most of us here would probably show interest in it.
Personally, I am needing the hoist arm for a 4A blade. Want to sell me yours (if you have one and it's in good shape)?
933 42A, D4 7U, 2- D2 5U, 2- D2 4U, PV 15, LaPlante Choate C-20 scraper, and always with an eye out for more
How much do you want for the machine?
Is it a bulldozer with blade or a trackloader with a bucket? D4 7U Traxcavator weighs closer to 10 tons with a counterweight or winch.
Do you have a carb on the starting engine? Looking for one for my D42T-settle for the bowl assembly if it is in good shape-shoot me an email.
