Steve, scratching my head about that, too. Its just pipes and sheet metal and some screen, but a lot of it. When you come close, youll see that the screen is made of 1/2 " thick wire mash. Id guess the canopy wey about ~ 2.5 tons? I like all the doors and cover you can open for maintainance, everything looks well thought up and like clean built.

Regarding the specs 21-31-41, I say jackpot, was curious about comparing these three tractors for a long time. Thanks mate.

Blessed weekend to yall

They did. And Im blast away by handrendered illustrations like the HD41 cutaway. Man, there really was a time when they paid an highly qualified illustrator to get a sales catalogue done. Thanks Steve, will enjoy reading these!

Love to do illustrations by myself, before starting operating equipment, I made my living as an Industrial Designer. Here is a D9E with Kelley ripper, canary cage and Rome Plow KG blade. Have never seen a D9 equipped like this, but Im convinced you can clear a considerable amount of trees per day. Either you leave the stumps in the ground, or you use the Kelley to pull stumps. No dirt work on the KG blade Shame on you

Hi Steve,

yeah. But I decided to leave Industrial Design and work on books for children. My actual project is about a quarry shovel.

Max that is great, good for you. I still have my Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel from over 40 years ago. It is nice to see children’s books geared towards construction. Please let me know when your book is completed, I would be happy to buy one from you. It seems like it will be loaded with pictures, so I will absolutely have to buy a second one for The Q.
Thanks for that information, and your illustrations are very good, love that Cat dragster.

Here is a picture I found of a HD 31 brush dozer. Almost seems like it would be too heavy for brush work.Think

Hi Ken,

I've just browsed through your photos on facebook. Man, I love your customs, especially the 977 with demo poker pole and the 988A snow plow. Ken, since I'm going to publish an article about land clearing tractors - can I include your D6T with HOLT equipment? That would be sumpthin!

But now back to my custom - here we go:

At least some progress. You dont see solder joints coming loose, the cage breaking apart in the middle (2 times) and burnt fingers. It was fun!


Cheers,

Max
