Hi Jdfan,I don't have any experience with John Deere machines .I have seen 420s ,and i would imagine that they would be a bit too light for dozer work. It depends what machines were popular in your area .I would look at a cat D4 6 or 7U, Allis chalmers HD5 or 6.Here is a Photo of our D68U 1947 model still able to do real work .

Hi Ian,
Nice find - do not see many BTD8s around here in Qld.
Did a reseal on my D4 fuel lift pump today. Found that the tell-tale leakage pipe had been crimped off with a pair of pliers so instead of leaking fuel out, it was being pumped into the engine. The insides of the engine are nice and clean now after being flushed with diesel!

Don't you just love it when you buy these Cockies specials ..Fencing pliers or wire can take care of any problem ,Untill you can palm it off some where else .
Well we got the fiat 70CI up and running , now its doing a runner up the highway .It is being replaced by an Aussie Icon tractor ,A Chamberlain Super 90 .Photos on its arrival .

The wire rope at the bottom gives some movement ,Lot of Canopys i have seen with out it break because of the vibration and stress.

Hi Gordon ,The two lines are the Hydraulic lines.
Australia was the first place outside the US that Caterpillar allowed cat machines to be built under license.
