    I think you can get these models through Buffalo Road Imports.The fellow name is Branden Lewis. I brought a model of the Cat 657 scraper and a D9H from him. The models come from England I think. If I remember they were about $950.00 each well worth it.

    What a Pro- This person should get a patent on his works and let the world share his talent. Most people don't realize what a excellent machine the large Cat scrapers were. that's an era that has pasted us all. Just to let you all know us as operators of those monsters , there nick name for the 666's was Buffalo's. The company I work for had six of them. Talk about moving Dirt. Just glad I got to run them.

    Default 666,s

    Hi Al,yes Buffalo,s i,ve heard of them being called that,i bet they was some
    wild ride,and what an experiance that must have been,have you any
    photo,s or film footage of them in action,i wonder how many there are
    still working in the US or world today,i bet not many with the black smoke
    the beasts threw out and governments thinking there cleaning up
    the planet, yes the 666 a legendary machine.

    I started a 660/666 thread over at Heavy Equipment forums and got a lot of interest with a bunch of photos. ACI Grading probably runs the most at present when they have the work, 24 odd 660 all DD repowered. The only way to hog big dirt back in the day and it would be great to see some more pics and footage if anyone has some.
