What fond memories I have of operating a dozer many years back. It was a NTK jap knock of to the Cat D4. It worked very well for the couple of years I was on it and it was quite a few years old when I jumped on it. I used to push up clay at Kemps Creek for a few brick yards and I was under strick instructions that the stock piles must be as steep as possible at the end of the day. This was to allow water run off if it rained and only the top couple of inches would be wet and left dry clay underneath.

I wonder how far yer’d have to go to roll that TC12. It would have to have the widest stance of comparable powered dozers.

Yeah, that Euclid sure sounds nice with a full blade pushing. It also demonstrates how the two halves can articulate on uneven ground.

Would this be one of the Euclid/GM Dozers?

The image isn't very clear but the image was taken on the Sydney/Newcastle Expressway in 1963'ish.

Telstra laid a fibre optic cable to a tower, this tractor did the ripping, put the D2 beside it.

I saw a video somewhere here in Oz, I think of a pair of the Euclids doubled up side by side. One track for each dozer and they were joined up as one machine. The demo I saw it was playing around with a dirt stock pile and it didn't feel a thing just flattened it.
