Thread: 5J D-2 for sale

    Default 5J D-2 for sale

    I have a 5J D-2 for sale. Tractor runs decent, has a slight miss at lower rpm's, possible injector issue. Tractor has good undercarriage and nice grousers. I used tractor for moving stuff around the yard, and took to a few shows, but now it just sits. I need the room and funds to focus on my gas cats. $2000.00. Tractor is located in Reno, Nevada. P.M. or email me for more info. Thanks, Caterpillarman.

    Default Further clarification....

    The majority of D2's made were topseat models - this includes the side-tank model shown above as well as the seat-tank model where the fuel tank is in the seat back and base. Both of these types have the seat mounted above the rear end housing.

    The tail seat models had the seat mounted low on a bracket that extended rearwards and was mounted to the rear face of the rear end housing. This put the seat down closer to the drawbar in order to lower the operator's position to help clear low hanging objects. The clutch and brake controls also had additional mechanisms to extend them further back for the operator to reach.

    Really different looking machines, those tail seats.

    That's a nice looking 5J he's got. I guess it's one of the last of the D2 series then? A long way from me though.
