    Default D6C Price?

    New member, 1st post!

    Found a '67 D6C with all original parts and the service tech I had check it out only found a bad clutch brake and some minor hydraulic leaks that can wait to later. Engine in great running condition. He's estimating 70-80% U/C left. What's a fair price for this? I've seen pricing on the web from $12k-$23k. I'll use it <50-75 hours a year on my small farm to clean up some fence rows, knock out some trees, and maybe re-dress some land a bit here and there in NKY. It's in excellent condition from what we can tell. Oh, and I'm a rookie on runnin' this beast.

    Also need to find someone to move it for me, about 20 miles. Is there a service I can use for this? Cost for that too??

    S/N: 99J186, need manuals too and how to I obtain the right ones?

    Thx for helping out a rookie!

    Our 1964 d6c came with a s blade,and the c frame with a fleeco rake on it. Paid 11,500 for it and $240 to have it picked up and brought 100 miles. This was last year.

    I have since put $7k into it to make her solid.

    I paid $21k for my D6C 10K in 2005. UC was at ~75% left when I bought it, needs a new UC now after about 1000 hrs. My advice is don't do a lot of back blading like I did, really ate up the sprockets and pins/bushings. I was a rookie when I bought mine. Also, use the steering clutches to turn over long distances, don't ride the brakes. I also hit the decelerator and get off the clutches/brakes when changing gears even though I have a power shit. I never liked shifting my power/shuttle shit stuff at higher throttle and under load although that's what they were made for.

    Do a search on eBay every few days for genuine Cat manuals. They will be of higher quality photos and printing than the aftermarket copied manuals. Manuals come up all the time. Make sure they cover your serial number.

    A 10k series D6C with 75-80% undercarriage and the rest of the machine is decent is a $20-30k machine around my parts (winch or grapple, hyd tilt helps). But, one man's eye-balled 80% can be Caterpillar's actual 30% so hopefully he knew what he was doing when estimating.
