Fixed it for you, also cropped it and enlarged a bit.

 

Cool machine!

It is a great little crawler, seems to have been spared from much abuse. The 4 cylinder wisconsin is either a VH4D or a V465D making it either 30 or 65 horsepower respectively. It is a giant motor and of all the case davis task force machines this is the largest engine I have been able to locate in one. All of the I'd plates are painted over multiple times it seems so it will be a bit of work cleaning them up. Tomorrow my hot water pressure washer should be arriving and this will be a great first job for it! I picked up a water cannon with becket burner and cat pump and electric start honda engine, it should make my grease and sludge fighting days much easier and fun to boot! I will post pics of the pressure washer and cleaned up crawler soon. Thanks for all the nice comments and support.

Nice machine!! 

 

Looked seriously at a wheeled, articulated Case Davis trencher (Model 45???) a couple years ago. It had the backhoe and front trencher chain.  I wanted it for an articulated tractor/backhoe.  It had the Wisconsin engine, two or 4 cylinder, but the head was off one of the cylinders and the piston firmly corroded into the cylinder liner.  They only wanted $800 for it, and the backhoe was worth that, but I figured it was too much of a project for me to tackle.

 

One thing I noticed, having once maintained armored vehicles, is that the leading edge of the track (the part with the beveled angle) is to the rear... probably since it's mostly driven to the rear in trenching??

 

Regards,

 

Smitty
