From last week, took this fine piece of machinery to Northern France, to be more specific it's a CAT 954.

Cheers, Patrick

Aye, just took me half an hour to get the bloody thing up and running... there was some "hidden" button build in for security reasons but nobody told me about it... :roll:
But when I did finally started the engine, my word, that's how engines should sound like :claphands:

954? Thought that Cat pipe layer model numbers started with a 5.
9 numbers for loaders , odds on tracks and evens on wheels?
Or have things changed?
