Cool crawler. I agree about the air cleaner, needs one on there badly.

It won't have 70hp for long unless he puts an air cleaner on it. That 70hp figure is at a high rpm as well. I don't know what he's using for a transmission but that is likely the limit in terms of how much HP can be used. Nice little crawler though, well done, looks nice and seems to be easy to handle.

I agree, nice job ob it. I would like to know where they sourced the tracks. I think it would be nice to do this with a small diesel.

I agree completly on both points! Maybe a 20 hp Diesel? And maybe a 3 point hitch?
I would sure like to see more detail on the tracks and suspension. Pulling a spike harrow across plowed ground at that speed with such a smooth ride, tells me he has that part of the thing pretty well figured out.

I think its cool, but a waste of a good MF14/16. Should have just bought an older Struck mini dozer.
