Needing a helper on unloading a case 1150e dozer off of my trailer. My insurance company prefers it as well.
Have an 1155e trackloader and mw24c wheel loader to assist. Simple process and easy work for two people. Mostly just for controls and small stuff. Takes about 30mins. I have done it alone but safer with 2 people.

The customer could help, but i would rather have my 8yr old daughter at the controls if that says anything

Needed on Friday 1/26 after 2pm.

Thanks

Wes

Is there a hill that you can park your truck and trailer nose down on? If not, hook a chain to the MC1155E and pull the dozer off after releasing the parking brake and raising the blade. As always, Safety First. Equipment can be replaced, people, not so easy. I wish I was close by, I'd be on the way in a moment.

Wes. Can come your way after work but will be after dark. I only live 30 min. out but can't slip out of work to early. Regardless...if you have a problem or need something. 703-963-one -4- one - one. Matt

Has no parking brake and the hydraulic system wont lock in a certain direction so it may try to wiggle while torque is on the blade. With 55000lb of equipment and a steel deck and tracks I'll be careful. Just easier with 2 folks. Oh yeah and one track is catching slightly other one has no lock at all or direction.

pretty good unloading that buggy by you're self. you must have a death wish, the way you walk back and forth under that raised bucket. a really serious " NO NO. "

It had locks on the cylinders on the dead one it wasn't going to drop below a certain point.
