Last of all is a pic of an absolutely beautiful Michigan 285 wheeled dozer.This thing is maintained to a high standard and needs to be seen to be believed.
Unfortunately,wheeled dozers aren’t much use and this is more suited to a collector with deep pockets.
Very rare

Sadly this is very true, many youngsters no longer want to work on kit like this; give my regards to TC when you see him next. :thumbup:
