What Did I Find?? was created by John in Wy
Hi All,

Could this be CAT's early design of the crawler loader?? It has matching engine and trans group numbers. 7U937, has 5 rollers on the bottom and the one carrier on top, with loader pads and the drawbar with pto cover. Says D4 on the radiator. Any ideas, thanks, John

Thanks Willie, I think the hard nose was laying to the side somewhere. He had the timing gear cover welded up. So this is a cat made thing? Are they rare? That loader is massive especially the arms. They weighed it and it weighs 20,000#. I should be able to take the weights off the back and mount a winch there couldn't I? John
