That custom Caterpillar is simply amazing! I figure the engine is out of a Cub Farmall? I wonder how the final drive is built? I could look at close-up pics of it all day!


Dan, the engine is a Hercules power unit. You can see the Hercules on the radiator in the front shot. I'm not sure what was used for the drives.

I figured the Hercules label was just for show. What would have had that powerplant standard?

thanks for the pics. is the forklift on the a.c useable? an for the record i looked for 10 long years for a center motor wheelhorse and i got one now but sum1 at that show took one and painted it pink. really?


Yes, the forklift is usable. The guy that owns it said that they have picked up as much as 500# with it.

The pink Wheelhorse was a Cancer Memorial project.

Come to think of it, I do believe the engine in Gramp's old Avery Minneapolis Moline is a Hercules. Being we have never had to touch the engine, I've not had to know what the engine was! a 1950 model & the engine never touched! Great engines!

It's a cultivator. Owner called it a "Radish Cultivator", but it can be used for other things as well.

It's ground driven, and the rear row rotates a 2x the speed of the front row.

The 'cultivators' are movable, and can be set for different row widths.

I'm not sure what that actually came off of. Hercules engines were used on several tractors but they also made power units that were enclosed in their own engine house like Le Roi, Novo, and Wisconsin. I think this was one of those. I'm thinking the dashboard is actually the back of the engine house. The lettering on the front of the rad is actually raised in the metal.

I really liked seeing the A-C forklift, although picking up 500# with it seems a bit much with only a little B-10 behind it.
