Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

You would probably need a tanker truck or two at least to make any distance. That is a different machine.

Any vehicle with a walkway around the engine area is goung to have one of two price tags.  When new somewhere higher than OMG!
When old and the trans has failed they pay you to take it.
 We have a D6H in the shop that needs so much its cheaper to buy new than rebuild this one.

Lucked out recently, guy came by and wanted to buy my 1947 CAT 112 grader.  Bought it 18 years ago for $5500.00, and used it up until three years ago when my leg gave up on the clutch.  Charged the battery and the sucker started right up, but it leaked everywhere and needed some work. Gave me $3,000.00 cash. :08:

Something tells me you would need a fog machine filled with starter fluid to get this beast motivated in January
