it would a been a full time job keeping them fueled up them. I sure the sixty would be thirsty working hard pulling logs.

Hi, trainzkid88,
And here I was trying to figure it out. Thank you.

There were a few versions of this, including one that LeTourneau built - circa 1930 - for back filling pipeline trenches which straddled both the fill material windrow and the trench and pulled a bucket back and forth. LeTourneau 'ackshully' built his based onna failed attempt at an electric drive scraper.

Just my 0.02.

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

That’s interesting Deas, because the description of this is an Allsteel backfiller, probably adapted to cleaning out ditches.

Hi, gauntjoh.
Personally, I can't see any reason - from 12,000 to 13,000 miles away - why it couldn't be used for both jobs, at least in the hands of a capable operator. In both cases. it is pulling material towards itself, just for a different end result.

Just my 0.02.

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

it looks like that bucket might work both ways but the photo isnt clear enough to tell

Hi, trainzkid88.
It'z only gotta work ONE way to do BOTH jobs. The ONLY difference is that when cleaning drains as shown in the photo. you would have the trench away from you and be pulling the dirt FROM the trench toward the machine - - - a shown. When backfilling, you would have the trench closest to the machine with the spoil windrow on the far side of the trench and pull the spoil toward the machine so that it can fall INTO the trench.

Or at least that'z how this 'pore, dumm bulldozer op'rator' sees it.

Just my 0.02.

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