Today we where invited by the club Wheels that collect and restore WW2 vehicles.
They had permission to play on the army camp Oirschot.

Awesome would have been so cool to be able to see in person all ways wanted to see a LeTourneau scraper in action that is in original form for years I worked for a shop converting these in to direct Mount hydraulic to be pulled by ag tractors

Well mine is not quite as nice as the ones Quad showed, but we will have my LS hooked up to my 2U D8 on the 21st of this month. We are empting out the sheds, having some friends over, and going to have an elk fry and old iron parade at the homestead here. You are not to far off. Plenty of camping room. Hope to get a video post afterwards.

I owned and used an LS LeT to move a lot of dirt. Pulled it with 3T/17A D-7's. I sure would have liked to make a few rounds with that D-8 hooked to that nice looking, little used, LS LeT.
