Bill, it’s been a while since I’ve been on. Last I knew I thought u were in Aromas. I see on your heading u r up in Monterey hills. That’s a nice area. Maybe that’s why your picture has sun in it. Very nice tractor. I can see how that wood would survive in the high desert but not so much around here. Anything metal or wood is rotted out in a few years. Have a great time.

Bill, What is the construction of the roof? Does it have a layer of canvas or is it all wood? Back in our area the only Cat I remember with a cab was owned by the county road department and it was steel.

Yes the roof is wood and covered with canvas. I am priming the roof and putting on a new covering. Bill

No snow relief holes in them so my bet it is for easier turning with the wide pads. It has all the traction it can probably pull even with the tapered bars.

Wide shoes are for floatation, allot of small crawlers with wide shoes were used in carrot, radish, lettuce and other produce crops where the soil was soft or kinda swampy. Thats why quarry dozers use the narrowest shoes and LGP dozers use the widest.

Hi Bill, is the product used to glue the canvas to the roof also used to waterproof the canvas or is the canvas suitably waterproof anyway?

Cheers,
Neil.

on old wooden boats with wood canopy and decks we recanvassed them by putting a coat of enamel on the wood--placing the canvass while wet and then coated again with enamel--they seemed to last pretty good
