Never seen a D9 moving so fast. Most low drives are so worn down and
superanuated that they got to be nursed in slow motion pushing wet grass!

Rolling thunder! ; )

Cool Clip..the shot at the end with it pushin' dirt up the mound during
sunset was great!!!

The 286hp D9 was first shown in 1954.Great shot a 2:02

that's pretty neat How those he keep that blade lever to the ground and
nice work on the mountain pile

Pull the sprockets and press on the ones that take segments, or cut the
rims off the existing ones and weld on the ring that accepts the segments.
I never converted a D9 but I did the D6 in my other vids.

Thanks Dave, great machine!

1955 was the first year of production for the D9

Author Journeyman ( ago)
Nice video. Does anyone know what was the first year they made them?

Author dieseldave71 (944 years ago)
D9D, 18A series

Thats a pretty clean D9. I'm looking at a D7. I'm not sure on the year but
it's the turbo version, with a cable dozer. the skin on the blade is pretty
well toasted and the undercarriage is shot and he wants 2500 bucks for it.

Author dieseldave71 ( ago)
The machine itself is actually pretty quiet in real life. The tracks squeak
like that because they're so worn. I have a good undercarriage for it, but
it's a bunch of work to change it. The sprockets need 100+ tons to get them
off! Maybe this spring I'll get to it...

The D6C was a great machine- one of the best Cats ever made. I've always
had my eye out for a good one at the right price, but for now I make do
with the old D6 9U. I just put a tilt cylinder on the old D6- it worls so
well I'm tempted to put on on the D9.

Author dieseldave71 ( ago)
don't give'em too much respect LOL Lots of chintzy plastic junk and
electronics, nowhere near the quality of the old ones.

Author dieseldave71 ( ago)
Only the little cats are hystats as of now- the D6 and up are still
powershifts like the old ones were. I had a brand new D6T for one of our
jobs this year, and while I'm not sure that I'm sold on the differential
steering it was certainly a more productive machine than my D6 9U LOL. Of
course it's not fair comparing a 100hp 12 ton dozer to a 200hp 25 ton one-
a better match for the new D6 would be a 14A D8 at 191hp and approx 25 ton
working weight.

That left-side idler was looking a little 'bouncy'. Great vid!

Author dieseldave71 ( ago)
me too- most of the time LOL The new ones are fast, productive, and comfy,
but they don't have the soul and personality that the old ones did.
