interesting removal of equipment, think you could have had better luck with blade if you had drug it rather than lifted it off the Mountain. Your ripper could have lifted the blade and drug the arms might have save the chains. but each recover has unique and sometimes difficult challenges that are not seen by the audience. Congratulations regardless I enjoyed watching your efforts and success and will be looking forward to more in the future.

Could have put the old blade on the front of the newer d8 and used the weight from it to help balance it

I think the way you do if like you said if you can't use it then why even do it you got to watch these big companies they want to use your name in order to make money off of you you better be careful do your own thing control your own destiny and all you guys all you guys put together doing what you're doing it reminds me of MacGyver but that was just a TV show I enjoy watching all you guys do different jobs that you know what to do and you talk amongst each other and you take each other's opinion on what it should be wrong with these machines I enjoy that

It would be a blast to do something like this. I have spent the last 30 years doing heavy equipment moving that's why I'm thinking y'all are doing things behind the camera on these thing y'all are getting cuz shit that's set for 12 years plus doesn't work as easy as y'all are making it look

Unhook the hydro lines and cap them off. If the hydro motor is stuck, disassemble it to just the hub. At that point the only resistance could only be the shaft itself or bearings, beyond that your dealing with the gearbox which you are only looking at having to gut it except for the output shaft...a D8 will absolutely destroy any stuck bearings and overcome any non-gear multiplied resistance! Make it happen, Get it done pussies! You deal with this every day, Why is this even a thing for you?!
bluevette1978 10 days ago
I don't know what year of D8 you are trying to recover, but usually my first action when dealing with old equipment when it doesn't do what I want is to...IDK GOOGLE IT! Usually I can find exploded diagrams that tell me how it works. If I can't I call the service department at the closest dealership for that brand and ask for the Greybeard mechanic, The old guy that no one likes but is too valuable to the shop to get rid of and he knows it. He knows his sh*t and chances are he has dealt with what I am dealing with. #MechanicHacks

heavyd, you sir may consider yourself to be an enthusiast, but you have miraculous problem solving skills. I wouldn't put any heavy equipment past you, you've been playing with toys so often lately, you've seen just about everything and can adapt on the spot to figure things out. keep it up heavy!

Takes a hell of a machine to drag a D8 out of the wild like that. I can't think of anything better than another D8 to handle that task. Good on you D.

Can't free wheel. The whole track frame, sprocket and final gears sit on a dead axle (a solid 4.5- 5" Shaft pressed into the frame) your only options was to push or pull that thing down the mountain or do some heavy duty wrenching by pulling the track frame off and pulling the final cover and gears out then sticking the cover and frame back on (not a job you want to do on a mountain side)

My brother in law is one of the most respected CAT mechanics in Ohio. If you want to message me, I can give you his contact info. But bringing him to Utah from Ohio may not be a cheap thing.... But he is a third generation CAT mechanic!

Daltonโ€™s Equipment
They have pressed In Dead shafts no axles to remove. Not a planetary final drive. You can however cut the sproket segments off the hub and free wheel the chain on the hub. Shit I bet I could have driven it out with the segments off the locked up side and clutch pulled. Towing it would have been a breeze.

so what does one do with a broken bazillion pound hunk of metal now that it's off the mountain? Part it out on ebay?

This guy obviously loves to hear himself talk and talk and talk. Less chatter and more action and while youโ€™re at it, hire yourself a professional camera operator. It makes a world of difference since you are in competition with lots of really great videos. Keep trying, thereโ€™s hope for you, maybe?
