Martin,Check out the Historical Construction Equipment Assoc. great web-site.(www.hcea.net)You will probably see a picture of that fine looking dozer,or be able to contact a member for help identifing it. The local chapter of this great group came to our tractor show this year with a drag-line,two shovels,a cable hoe and several dozers.Most were restored to like-new condition. They put on a working display,moving 100s of tons of dirt from a hill top on our club grounds. There is much interest in preserving these old peices of history.

Definately a Cletrac, circa 1920. Cletrac was a leading make and a serious competitor for Caterpillar up until the Depression. Cletracs had exceptionally high ground clearance, which made them very popular in the logging industry. Cletrac slipped badly during the 1930's and sold out to Oliver in 1944. Oliver continued to make cletracs until 1966, with virtually the same undercarraige as the crawler in the picture!
