Hi, ROME K/G.
Kinda looks like that, doesn't it? I had a similar thought when I first saw it. Sorta puts the cola blades in the shade, I thought. Also, I've seen a few videos of various dozers on wood chip piles but that it the first time I have seen that kind of blade.

Just my 0.02.

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

Hi, ROME K/G.
I seem to remember seeing a double dude blade arrangement on a pair of A-C HD41s but I couldn't find it to post here.

Just my 0.02.

Hi Deas. That video brings back memories. I would take the surf rods down to the Lee break wall opposite that wood chip pile and try to catch fish that weren’t there. I would watch the dozers go up and down that pile all day and night. They were Komatsu back then. There have been a few dozers topple off that pile over the years. Interesting watching the trucks being unloaded. They drive onto a platform then chained down and a massive ram lifts the whole platform up over 45 degrees and the chips slide out. From driving on to driving off is around 90 seconds. The wood chips come from Mt Gambier.
