My wife has been going thru some of the boxes of photos that we have collected thru the years and came across this old photo of the Lindeman crawler.

This was taken a long time ago before the crawler was finished painted and I was still working the bugs out of the front end loader.

We were leveling the land around a pond and I had modified an old grader to pull behind the crawler.
The blade on the grader was operated by hydraulic and was powered from the hydraulic off the crawler.

The levers to operate the grader blade were mounted right behind the crawler seat.

The 55 gallon drum on the back of the grader was filled with water for weight to help keep the rear grader wheels from slipping sideways.

That's a neat old pic. I like that grader. If I don't put the grader under the FF, something similar to this is what I envision for it.

Thanks for the photo, a step back for a moment. Don't think you ever posted that one on any of the fourms.

Neat with the grader, oldies.

You going to do a thread on the rebuild? I have a 1010 that might get an engine transplant.

The "old digs" hasn't sold yet so we don't have any "new digs" yet.
