Breaking News - 400G has arrived

Post by JWB Contracting » Fri Jun 28, 2019 2:28 pm

I been patiently waiting to buy a 1,400 hour 400G at a local auction. It’s now home and in great shape. It’s a local gas company machine and has a Sideboom attachment and rear winch. Canopy was cut to fit the Sideboom. I’ll be removing the boom and stealing an unmolested canopy off one of our yard loaders. Pictures will follow short once I get authorized to post them.

Curiosity only not knowing anything about 400s, is it a dozer or loader? Same three cylinder engine of a 350?

I think the 400 is more of less 450 engine and drive train on 350 undercarriage

Yes it is, with G series tin and flat operating station with a decelerator. The power is a bit overkill. Has better cross members as well. .

Haven’t had any time to mess with it yet, we have had trouble keeping up with fixing rolling stock for resale. And have more machines for fixing rolling in shortly.

It will be getting some brand new pads that we have on hand, there probably 75% but might as well have the new ones on my machine. I’m going to build an arch for it, have a set of hoe hooks and skidder arch as a starting point. I won’t be modifying the canopy so hope the factory hoe hooks with canopy mounts work from a 350. If not I’ll get one of the master fabricators from my day job to fab it build it for me.

This will become the working machine and my 350C is going to get a full on restoration. Mostly paint, all new dozer hoses and some pins for the 3 point hitch is all it needs now. This is after a get an equipment shed built next summer.
