Thanks for all the helpful comments. I can't find much enthusiasm amoungst you guys for the jd 2010 so I will keep this one in mind and keep looking. I can tell the machine size, condition, and price trade offs are going to be difficult. Right now I am thinking pushing snow but I know I will want to be able to do more once I get one. I'll take a look at the 350 Nash has. I wonder if you can get around in his place in the winter?

Gman,

I have never dealt with Nash directly, but I bet some folks here have so I would ask and see if they are fair, will dicker on prices, etc.  On their web site they have alot of stuff sitting in the snow, so they clearly do business right now.  For the loggers this is a hot time so I can see why.

I am thinking about getting a crawler to work on my woods roads and keep them open in winter. I found an early vintage (S/N 10000) Deere 2010 Crawler with a blade and winch. The winch control needs rebuilding but the rest looks good to an unexperienced eye. Its an old machine from the 60's still running. Thanks in advance for your comments.
I had my old girl for a couple years now. She just keeps on snorting. Worked the bush this winter and we had a great time.

The Deere looks good perched up there. Good on the pics for a first time poster.

Welcome to the forum.

Any more pics of the Deere working the bush?

 We sold one two years ago for half that. Was in good shape, good undercarriage, good motor (gas), ran well. However; those machines are not one that I would recommend for one that is not familiar with dozers. They have a lot of shortcomings as some of the other fellows have said. Part prices are nuts for these old things, but so are those for Caterpillars. If you decide to get one of them and need parts, get on the 'net and shop before you buy. Had a similar case last year where Cat was 4 times the price of what I could get aftermarket parts for. The aftermarket parts, (steering clutches-English made and steering clutch hubs-Italian) were better quality than Cat's. Also 1/4 the price! I would not pay 5 grand for your friend's machine! Cheers, Old Iron nut.

I think you should be able to find a good 350 or 450 for that money

Welcome to the forum.

Chains? How about some pics.  We like pics.

Are you logging with the 2010?  Or landscaping?

Too bad you didn't live closer, because then i'd sell you mine very cheap for parts. On mine, the rails rusted out where the idler slides back and forth. Mine also has the 6 way blade. It's been sitting in the garage for the last 3 years because I haven't decided wether it's worth repairing or not. I should probably just scrap it and give the wife that spot in the garage to get her off my back.

As far as dealing with Nash---Good luck. I recently sent photos of my 240D to see if we could work out a trade towards a grapple. They offered me 12k, when i asked why they are asking 26k for ones in worse condition they just said that's because we're selling it. So they basically weren't giving me anything towards the other skidder. That will be my first and last dealings with Nash Equipment.

I had one in the late 70's, same thing track frame bent and it would be headed back to the barn!   I figured out if I kept that side plugged up with snow and ice it wwent ok.  Sold it to a guy named Jimmy Carter, true story!
