Not a halftrack but cool

Couldn’t help my self picked up this little gem. A Letorneau Model D4 Airborne Scraper. Just too cool to pass on.

Don if you need an old tractor to mess with (and who don't) and to pull your LeTourneau, here's a pretty cool one. An Int'l. TD 18A gas/Diesel and BeGe scraper. Ran 9 years ago. Located in So. Cal. The owner's about to scrap them.

Geez Don, what does your yard look like now?!  More importantly, what did your wife say? :)

Any progress on the halftrack?

Wish I could save it way to big for me! This scraper only weight 4300lbs.

I wish I would quit finding deals I can’t walk away from! Found this gem on Craigslist. 1943 Clark CA-1 probably one of the most complete non restored dozers I’ve seen. Time to get my shop rebuilt so I can start getting some of this stuff restored!
