Thanks Sean
The modular cabs are not to bad but in the standard cabs are enough
to cook yer, with the hydraulic tank in the cab with you and heat
coming up from the transmision bugger its hot,they rearly do need the
ac in warmer weather with the hours there doing:)

Please do Graham more the merrier, i remember something
about that blade being offset,but at the minute cant think

threatning to hyd it for one of the D6,s but never get

The very first Cat we bought was a very tired D6c82A in 1968
a base machine worked to death on a 5000 acre estate,after
a seasons ploughing we visited the scrap yards for a blade for
it,consisting of 955 rams,fowler challenger A frame and Allis
blade,here,s a picture of the first job we did with it, dozing
a wood out in middle of December,then knocking down a hotel
before going on hire to Highways on the Eaton Socon By-pass.:)

Roly, what was the turning point going from the D6s to D8s, was it for a specific job or just natural progression?

Natural progression Richard,bought an onions 9/11yd box for the 82A,sold
the troublesome tractor in 1972 and bought my first and only new cat
a 140hp D6c46j its still being used,to be joined later by a D6c47j that
even pulled a 6 furrow ts69,needing to move more muck two 22A,s came
in late 1970 we still use them,with the pressure of work i bought five
68A,s in the early-mid 1980,s then needing even more output i upgraded
to six D8K,s early-mid 1990,s that we still run today,i once swore i would
never own a hi-drive,but after using one we now run eight of them,
there a pleasure to work on,:) i,ve found some pictures of the 46j
working in 1973-4 on spittals interchange A14 with RB tylers BTD 20.
last picture the 46j working this year.
