I've owned a few some I bought to fix and resell others I've bought and used for awhile. But it's good to know from others about a specific brand or model. Helps me to know about potential problems with them. This skidder was talked about briefly awhile back on here by another member here in ri.

Well I finally got to check out the skidder, I was actually pretty surprised of the shape it was in. It was in pretty good shape for a old skidder. No major leaks, good forestry special tires. Braden winch works but was a little hard to free spool out probably do to a little surface rust on the drum. Blade and steering pins tight, center had a little play but not bad at all, cradle pins tight and engine fired right up with no abnormal noise or smoke and seemed healthy. Only thing that didn't work was the service brakes probably because they had hydraulic oil on them. Overall didn't find anything that would steer me away.

One other thing I noticed was the rear frame seemed to be longer than a normal c4 and I didn't see any after market welding.

Depends on what transfer case is in that machine, either a Rockwell T32 or a Cotta. You should have no trouble getting a set of shoes Aftermarket Parts or Davco will carry them.

I'm not in possession yet I've been crazy busy with firewood sales and wood lot estimates. But hopefully by the end of the month at the latest.

Well finally decided to buy the tree farmer now to shell out the green backs and get it home and into the shop and go through it for its first job. I think i will make out good as it comes with another motor and trans,  both need rebuild but i can have them gone through and fixed so i have replacements should something happen.

So is this the gasser or the one with the Ford diesel ? You looked at two different C4s   right?
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!
