D8 15A pushing snow -2023

Mike Osbourne, near Riverton, Wyoming clearing the driveway. February, 2023. The tractor is a 46A - the board will not let me edit the "subject" line.

Has been tough on the cattle guard and the bird feeder. 13' 6" blade and you don't have to worry about widening out.

Photos were taken by Mike's daughter.

Thank you for posting, great pictures, but are you sure that's a 15A ?
Looks like a later model to me, D8H 36A or 46A ?.

Hi, willwingo.
Good photos and thanks for posting. But, like gauntjoh, I'd put it at later 36a with the side hydraulic tank, which would make it about 1963 or later.

Just my 0.02.

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

The D8 is a 46A, the 15A in the subject line is a typo. 
Thanks for posting the pictures,

Is it a 46A? I was peering at the location where the powershift lever would be and I can't see one but I can see what looks like a main clutch lever next to a winch control lever - like a 36A would have. Must need to update my eyeglass prescription.

Cheers,

The text in the original post says the subject line was a typo and the tractor is a 46A. 
Maybe that's a typo too?

Its either a 36A or a 35A and either 235hp or 225hp. My best guess it is a 36A.

Hi, Wombat.
It does appear to have the offset fuel tank and the side-mounted hydraulic tank which went with the later D8Hs but I don't know enough or have enough reference material to be able to pinpoint it more than that.

Just my 0.02.

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