Cat is like John Deere.  They make everything, and love what they make.  Cat is what John Deere is to farmers for construction guys. 

 

Just ask our forum kitty.

i went to pull a fuel filter off of it today to get new ones ordered and looked at the hour meter it only reads 600+ hours on it and looking at the engine and undercarriage i would say thats about right

it runs and moves on its own power. after tinkering with the governor and a pull from a jd it was running both steering clutches need adjusted bad. as of today it has 613 hours on the clock for being 65 years old and from the looks of everything the hour meter hasn't rolled over the tracks and sprockets look great even the paint on the head studs is still there.
