You notice the D6 8U Farm cat. Unfortunately stuck (recently), but Dennis says he is going to tear it down and repair the engine. It was a very smooth runner. The can on the stack rusted through introducing water to the engine. But it is a semi-arid region of the country, so how bad could it be? Wish it were mine.
We are beginning the tour of one of the buildings housing parts and tractors.DSCN3033.JPGDSCN3032.JPGDSCN3031.JPGDSCN3034.JPGDSCN3055.JPG
I will be Colorado next month, would like Dennis location so I could go by to look for a blade that would go on a RD6.

Brighton, Colorado 80603
Not too far off I-25 and state highway 7.
An easy GPS find.
thankyou for the photos, lovely machines,
I have a 9k similar grader I could do with some small parts does he have an email contact ?
Thanks for the tour!
A good general sheet metal shop can build the round tanks your looking for. Dimensions and pictures and you could get any thing you want built--those tanks would not be a problem to duplicate.
Digger Dozer, no e-mail contact. Unfortunately, you'll have to either write or call him. I'll be talking to him again in a couple of weeks, and if you can post the part numbers and common names you need, and the serial number of your machine, I can print them out and hand them to him. You are so far away, and the cost of telephoning is probably high. GWH
BullDozerBob, thanks for the suggestion. I don't think it would be hard to get the drawings from Cat for those tanks. GWH
I will get a list together of some small parts thankyou 9k grader ( serial numer is different as it was an earlier model built under licence US 7th fleet , but the same as 9K )
I sent you a PM about Dennis' store-house of goodies.
