Hi, Folks.
How many of you can tell me what this tractor is?

 

A kew-ree-yuss mind would like to know, not what the photos are of but how many recognize the 'animal'.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Tractor - hmmm - someone had a lot of money and time to "tinker" with that D8 -
Radiators behind the seat - looks like maybe a "roots" blower of a "screaming jimmy" - who knows what else they have done to the machine. Maybe some TEREX - AKA - Euclid cross breeding took place.
Just a guess, but that may have been an early attempt to put a "slush box" and do away with the direct drive.

Why anyone would want to mess up a nice Cat like that?

It appears the starting engine is still intact - note the location for the crank, Oh my poor knuckles!

I am "kew-ree-yuss" - did the owner take it to the dealer claiming it was a warranty defective machine?

Enlighten those of us that have not been in the "outback" as long as you.
