Buying a Caterpillar 977 crawler loader from an auction, trucking it home, and operating it for a few hours digging into a rocky hill side.
is there a video of him getting the 955?
What drone are you using?
What is d particular reason to go for a track loader rather then a wheeled loader ,is it d offroad capability or r der any oder reasons.Please help me any 1
You need cameras mounted in front and one in back.
I like your videos…much action and less talking
How much $ do those loaders usually run for in that condition?
My question as well
I'm a bit worried Andrew may be carrying a grudge against his local government officials. Anyone know if he's been involved in any rezoning disputes lately, or had any disputes with a cement factory owner?
Might just get more power out of it .replacing that muffler on it
Great video. Thanks for sharing
14:35 in ten more years you won’t be jumping in and out like that. LOL
I can’t wait to see this one on more jobs.
Like butter. You might as well retire that old “mean green” machine.
That will be a good snow plow in the winter since your hill gets so icy.
Assuming that beast is just for use on your property since you don't have a way to transport it to jobs.
its cheaper to buy a dozzer to the job for yourself and sell it after..
Andrew. This video would have been better if you took camcorder to the auction and showed the inspection.
I kinda bought this without looking at it.
Finally bought something and didn't have to do one little repair to it
wow Hi guys, I also got a beautiful crawler loader. If anyone cares I'll put the video I created ... Thanks Andrew seblacks.info/cold/video/hHuWrrBrroOYf6Q.html
Hey Andrew, have u got any video's yet of works with the 977 ??
@Andrew Camarata sweet mate, I enjoy your videos, where u live looks like a really nice part of that world - I’m from Gold Coast Queensland Australia, so your videos have defiantly got around indeed
Working on a big one. I got a 988 too
where do get all of your financing
Kind of like the guy who has a 44 magnum, but for no good reason buys a 454 Casull.
I feel like all of New York is just rock.
There is no way in hell you are buying 10's of thousands of dollars in equipment every year workin solo plowing roads and clearing land....not to mention the proballay 300k you put into that castle... you had to have inherited some cash flow or something. You would make a lot more if you trained employees BTW and let them do half the crap you waste time on
You are going to enjoy the D 977 series Andrew! A few differences but worth the weight. Beat of luck to you and the family!
that's a beauty track loader, that machine will work like a slave for you, smart buy!
During my working days a guy digging with a cat 955 excavator broke down so cat let him use a kamatsue or some other brand he said the cat 955 out worked the other used machine couldn’t even come close to the cat for power or ripping power so the cat is the machine to get if your looking for a excavator of equal size and he worked the machines to the max six days a week every week
You should bring us along to a auction and help us to see what’s going on.
Andrew you. Keep adding more equipment your going to teach your wife how to operate some of equipment hope she is for that !
It’s a shame that the engine side covers are missing on so many of these old traxcavators. Great video it’s people like you that care about these old Cats Many thanks
You have far more hours on a machine than me, but I was taught to keep the bucket flat when going in to a pile, because other wise your pushing against the bottom of the bucket
Andrew any plans for one big pole barn for all your equipment under one roof? It would be really cool!!!
Can you tell us how many hours on the 977 Dozer, year, and cost you paid at auction? Do you have any videos of a customer job using it yet? Thanks!
Your living the dream my friend

You WILL buy some equipment!😎 looks like fun 👍
What kind of bulldozer is that.
Sounds like all the rods are knocking!
He has all the toys I want
Why didnt you just bite the bullet and get a d10 with a set of rippers and get that hill removed
A 983 next, then?
Pretty impressive buying equipment like that. That’s gunna be nice for pushing driveways in and clearing.
Looks like it might need a new exhaust pipe
Hola Andrews te estoy siguiendo hace tiempo pero no entiendo el idioma inglés podrías poner subtitulos en español por favor desde santiago de Chile abrazos 🇨🇱🇨🇱
Riga Smotrim Latvija
Check your Check book pal. Lhs
Nice loader! Lots of fun in that thing! :D
50 years ago i ran a 977 in Autobahn construction. If you have to make a large surface plane it`s not so funny!
isn't a rule that anything that squeaks is a part that if not oiled will wear out faster?
Really nice loader the b series cats are a lot smoother do a lot nicer cleaner job like the 963b but I also got a lot of love for old loaders.
Andrews IRL Minecraft base is really coming along.
So, was Andrew a popular figure before he got on SEblacks, and now he's bigger than movie star's of any year or life span.
Build a ramp to get up top and push the face height down
Great investment Andy.
I was thinking the same thing but he can’t go wrong with he Cats ! I love the fact if something breaks or doesn’t work right he just fixes it !
Why not tell people what you paid. I've always told people what I pay so they get an idea what to spend. I've noticed that on SEblacks everyone acts like it's some big damn secret.
Ce gars la est super doué, un manipule ces engins d'une façon extraordinaire comme s'il l'avais toujours fait qq que soit le modéle !!!!!
Hey! I didn't see you grease it!
U Ghost here and a couple other jpgs jiiuuuii
R G LeTourneau often said, "There are no big jobs, only little machines". Not many jobs were big for the 977 and 955. Pre-Track-Hoe excavating relied on these and 955. Of course minimum trench width was that big bucket.

Congrats very nice machine !!!!!!
Selling the 955?
nope, I just bought a 988 too.
Is that a Lowboy only item or is there a 24-ton trailer purchase in your future? Thanks for the videos!
@Andrew Camarata If you can please turn on subtitles for autimatic translation to other languages. Thnks =)
Usually loaders have that style track.
Probably needs Oil change and Air filter too. Definitely a Grease job.
How much is one of these? I don't see many of them, just mostly wheel loaders.
I finish grade with track loaders all day, every day
Never really seen to much of tracked loaders in action, they look pretty useless, and seem to have less traction than the wheel loaders, cos you can't put weight on the front idoler to increase traction like you can over the front wheels with a wheel loader when digging into the material. Not sold on the tracked loader!
They have their purpose.
Man that pete 389 is 🔥
I always worry when I see a really shitty paint job with drips everywhere. I feel like they are trying to get more than fair market value on something that was beaten to death.
That's a beast! I think they sold it because it needs new tracks. Or maybe you can weld on some new treads.
Does it have a heated cab? Just curious!
Someone installed an electric heater in there.
You should get a D8 dozer
excellent!! aquire more toys!! a forever fan.... -griff hall
Ok, the one I am looking at Monday makes this one look small.
Hell, I'd be happy with the little track loader. lol.
Pogresno radis sa masinom. Kad utovaras, grabis sa dna i dizes prema vrhu, a istodobno zatvaras kasiku. Kad dignes do visine haube, kasika je vec puna i zatvorena i vracas se nazad odmah.
You must doing used equipment business, but never sale??
Are we gonna ignore the WD40 under the hood???
I never understand how your video's can get a thumb's down. I watch you for hours and wish to be young again.
I love the bulldozer you got it looks fantastic.
Andrew offended the stone that fell on the bulldozer. Bought a bulldozer overtaking a fallen stone.
That Cat is a Beast moving those Giant Rocks !
Making More useable real estate on your mountain? Terracing it off for more equipment to come ? Great !
Does this mean you need to get your own low boy now? Would be interesting to know the basic fee to have them move your massive loader every time you’ve got a job...
From Curitiba Paraná Brazil. Sorry for my curiosity, what was the approximate value of this machine that you paid for?
Andrew I wish you would make your videos longer, I am an older person that used to be like You. Know All I can do is watch guy's wrenching and doing things thiere way. Got mad Respect for you Andrew.
Cody is inspecting that boulder the left. He is thinking, hey dude (Andrew) don't leave that thing there it's not safe man. Smart dog
Financially, I think Andrew is in MUCH better shape then we can imagine. If he owns a piece of equipment and it breaks, he fixes it in short order. Most of the used equipment he buys was probably sold by its owner for lack of funds to repair it properly. Andrew has access to these funds.
*Owns a home made castle* *Ownes a dozer and a welder* Just gotta wait till the county or city violates your rights and bam kill dozer 3.0
Watch those track seals on a 977, tight turns will blow them out and tracks will get real loose.
Looks like your preparing to recreate the Grand Canyon in New York State! LOL!
How you going to haul it.
Not planning on moving it. But can hire someone.
A zip line from the castle to the end of your driveway would be an absolute blast!
14:48 ha ha
3600$ or 36000$ ???
Repent to Jesus Christ! Are you a sinner? Saint Luke 5:32 KJV I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Saint Luke 13:3 KJV I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
You should run some of that stuff through a small gold plant and see what comes out lol
