Default Mini-Dozer Build

I've started the dozer build.

Posted this design/explanation a few months ago: https://youtu.be/gJNo8XFiUnU

Will publish the first real build episode in the coming week.

Just finished assembling a Langmuir Pro CNC plasma table. Waiting on the actual torch. Like a lot of stuff, supply chain issues have delayed the torch for a couple more weeks.

Then, it's game on.

I started with a basically a bare 1450 frame with just a dash, rear end with ported hydro and front axle. Bought that from a guy who builds pullers and had this left over. I then found a 1210 that had been sitting for 10 or 15 years. That's the frame on the left in the pic.

Pics below--the concept, and the current state of the build. The video to be published later this week will cover the work to get to the two stripped down frames.

Wow, what a nice table, I'd love to have one of those. Keep us posted how it works with lots of pics too. I'll be watching as I did last time.

Here's how I have mine set up. Haven't actually burned any metal yet, but I did put a sharpie in the torch holder and drew some pictures. LOL. Fusion 360 has a bit of a learning curve, but not as bad as I expected.

Oh, and I had to put in an entire new air system, new compressor, after cooler, moisture separators, and a refrigerated air dryer. Plasma cutters need dry air.

Me, too. I'm still waiting for the plasma cutter. It's months late shipping.

I ordered a bunch of sheet steel, so I'm ready.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
