there were two sizes of the number 10 can on the dw10 tractor, and various other mfg built cans for it as well as other attatchements, tooling and equipment. dozers, rippers, tool bars, end dumps, side dumps, etc. the following is the specs equipped as standard equipment. tire size, special order equipment of course changes many of the specs.

serial number 1N tractor from 1941 to 1946 was 100 hp, 14350 lbs., 15 feet long, 7'4" wide and 6'4" tall and packed 10x20 rubber front, 18x24 rubber rear.

serial number 6V from 1946 to 1947 was teh same except for weight of 14100lbs.

serial number 1V from 1947 to 1953 was 115 hp, 16610 lbs., 15'5" long, 7'8" wide, and was packing 12x20 rubber front, 21x25 rubber rear.

serial number 1V equipped with the large #10 3C serial number scraper (1947-51) was an 8.7yd struck/11yd heaped unit that was 35240 lbs., at 37 feet long, 9'11" wide, 8'10" tall and was packing the 21x25s on the can as well.

serial number 1V equipped with the smaller #10 19C serial number scraper (1952-53) was a 7yd struck/ 9yd heaped unit that was 33365 lbs., at 35'2" long, 9'5" wide, 7'9" tall and the can had 16x21 rubber on it.

interesting to note, the small 19c was also used with the dw15 after the demise of the dw10, in 1954 and 1955. dw15 was a 150 horse tractor, so really should have jerked the neck around on the small can.

the easiest way to tell the two #10s apart (as the tag has almost always been welded over with fish plate to keep the neck together) is that the 19C had axle supports from the outside of the can to the spindle shaft, while the
3C did not. both of these cans will hold much more than the spec, if the holes in the apron are welded up as they should have been, and side boards are added. the larger 3C with the larger tires can and does handle this modification with ease, and the tractor is horsepower is bumped up where it should be with rack adjustments and the addition of a turbo will handle the extra load rather easily, as well. for what i do with one, the larger can is a must have, as the distance i travel from the dozer pit to the road work can be several miles. just remember on the down hill to keep your foot out of the throttle, and your hand on the big brake in the event of a steering box failure, which is another common problem with the dw10 tractors. you will still have a manual gear box, that is fine at lower speeds for control, but all the oil will be either under the tractor, or on the floorboards under your feet and all steering knuckle play, will lend itself to a rather poor handling characteristic in the ruts on the downhill run.

Thanks Cable Cat that is a big help. I have found a DW10 that may be available some day. It is 500 Km from home and will be a bit long for my trailer28'. Weight is no problem. We will wait and see what happens.
regards Wimmera Farmer.
