Thanks for any ideas.

If you want something to lift with hydraulic cylinders, I would guess you would need a pump (electric driven, maybe by a Lego motor) hoses and the actual cylinders. I have no idea how small you could get hydraulic components, but I suspect most hydraulics are way bigger in dimensions than what you need for your 5 feet dozer.
There are pheumatic Lego components, but I'm not sure that they can be used for lifting stuff at the dimensions you speak off.
Anyway, very interesting MOC you are working on. Keep us updated on your progress

As for third party pieces, look at fischertechnik's line and see if they have anything useful. I vaguely remember reading once that their pneumatic system was compatible with the Lego one and had some extra features.
I think a bigger problem is what to use for the treads. I suppose you could just use several 8275 tracks side by side to make them look thick enough, but you would need something much larger than the usual sprocket wheels.
As mentioned there, those things don't have anything in common with actual hydraulic pistons and wouldn't be appropriate for this at all.

I would like it to be 8 studs across, and the outer shell about 40 studs long or so. I want the inner part to move as much as possible. Got any ideas?
