That one appears to be a little easier to remove than the CATs were. That is unless the tree has grown around the track. Might have to winch a stump on to your trailer along with it. :D

Bear, what model is this one? It reminds me of an old cat thatmy uncles used to have. I think the model was an R2. It ran on gas or keroesene.

Your right on it being gas and the size diff. I remember it being a noisy sob.. It worked hard for many a year. Had a cable winch sys. for the blade.. Wish I had a picture of that old cat.

you aways find the kitty no matter how tough its hiding. Lookd good bear. We used to have an old D-8 Cat , 2u, boy would that thing push the snow. It had tha gas pony motore on it also. Dropped a valve in it and we rebuilt it but it was way to tight. We put it on and never could get it to turn over.

How'd you get it on the trailer? I'm sure it took more than a couple of guys pushing:D

Looks to be in really good condition Bear! :thumbsup: A good pressure washing and coat of paint and it would look like it has been in clean storage.
