    Default Re: My new little Case 350B dozer

    Thanks everyone. I'm not sure why there's a decal that reads 355B because on the metal tag it reads 350B. As for the truck pulling it, I was worried about the hitch, the OEM is a class IV. So I installed a Curt Class V heavy duty rated for 17,000 pounds under the OEM with a Curt forged drawbar rated for 15k. I rented the trailer and it has 6k axles. The dozer is 10k with the trailer about 2k. My truck had no problem towing it the 50 miles home up hills and over passes until I got on the freeway, something my old "98" 2500 GMC could never do with a 350. I only plan to cut a driveway, level some ground for a future home that's about 2yrs away, trails, pond, septic and whatever else needs to be done. I have the 4400 with the 13' BH to pluck out any stump or tree that might get in the way. She's a small dozer but I'm positive it will do everything I need to do and more. I'm buying equipment prepping for a new home. I'm not a big fan of renting and absolutely hate borrowing equipment so I try to buy when I see a deal. The worst part is I have to listen to the little woman tell me its not gonna be worth anything by the the time I'm done in a few years. I told her in 3-4yrs I'll have a line 10 people deep to buy this little dozer for the $3k I bought it for, if I ever decide to sell it. She just laughed and shook her head.

    SCORE!!

    You will most definitely get your money out of it. A small dozer like that can do the work you need to do, even if you need to spend a little on it its a win, win.

    And that size you will not have a hard time selling it when done..... The hard thing will be letting go of it.
