    Default AC comparisons.

    Hi, Neil.
    I didn't hava lot to do with ACs in my career but what little I did have and see led me to believe that they would mostly outwork the comparable model of Cat - - - WHILE they were working. They almost always had more horsepower and a little more weight but not the engineering that went into the Cats. Much like the Internationals of the time and the 'Kummagutsas' of later times.

    Nice machines to operate, especially the dozers after they went to the Buda diesels but, like pretty much everything else, not a lotta fun when broken down and you hafta wrench on 'em.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Deas Plant.

    AC's were easier to work on than Cats. Known to be "faster", said to be "better all around" . I think all agreed Cats "held up better".
