Tips for operating a John Deere 450 dozer.
« on: October 31, 2017, 05:13:01 pm »
I picked up the neighbors 20 acres this summer and plan to rent a JD 450 to clear some trails and create some open space. The lot is mostly wooded with 30-50 year old trees, a lot of honey suckle and vines. Mostly it is steep, from the creek to the top it rises 600 feet in 1/4 mile. Three different ridge lines.
Has any got some tips for operating the 450. My neighbor says he will help out. Or advice to prep the area to cut, markers stump/tree removal incline, post dozer seeding?
My experience is limited to a skid steer and 50 hp Kubota.
