So the lift is made by someone other than Cat or the grader maker they bought?
Where in Kansas are you located? You mentioned that the model D came from Brown CO. Kansas. I was born in Doniphan Co., the county just east of Brown. I am part of chapter One, located in the Kansas City area. We represent all of Kansas, Mo., and now some of the remaining members of the Neb. club have joined with us.
You have a very rare tractor, possibly the only "One of a kind" left. Years ago I read in the Two Cylinder magazine that Neb. had purschaced quite a few of those D's and 15 Trailer Patrols.
I am in California and I own a Model DI John Deere AND the Cat Trailer Patrol grader that was originally sold with the tractor. The tractor and grader were originally sold as a pair from a local Cat dealer to Madera county road department. I have not seen one (other than in old pics) hooked up together. I would really appreciate any and all info I can get on both the tractor and the grader. They are both 1936 models. I am restoring the tractor now. Grader to follow.

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
