Hi Folks,

Today I was at the "War & Peace Show" down at Paddock Wood, Kent.
This is an excellent show and I will be posting quite a few pics that I took today mainly under the Military vehicles topic.
I came across this interesting beast but does anybody know the model number? ;)
I was also lucky enough to get a couple of shots of it on the move as it went to do a couple of circuits of the show area, it sounded awesome. :)

Jeremy

According to the book "Caterpillar 75 years" it looks like a Caterpillar 830MB with 18 yard Wabco CT4 scraper built in the late 60's.The 830 tractors were also used with Athey dump trailers. :thumbs_up: Tim

Its a Caterpillar 830M - Clark-Michigan also built a very similar unit.
You also had a choice of trailing scraper - Wabco, Wooldridge/Curtiss-Wright or Euclid :ugeek:

Hi, Jeremy.
The replies above are correct, a Cat 830M tractor with a Wabco scraper. Many of these tractors were also fitted with hydraulic dozer blades. This made them one very handy unit. You can see the dozer lift ram mounts on the side of the hard nose on this machine.

They were apparently a pretty robust machine and a rather effective earthmover. Several people have told me that they would work fairly happily in conditions that would have a Cat 627 twin-power scraper struggling.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi, DAJOCAT.
Please stop teasing us like that. It's all very well telling us that there is a barn full of these machines and Clark 290's in Holland.


WHERE ARE THE PHOTOS?
