Any chance the pony is a wrist breaking Wisconsin?

Straight pipe right off the turbo on the D9...I bet it barks pretty good! My brother has a Fiat Allis 21C and an FD30, I love feeling the ground shake when they are working.

I'd rather do a brake job on my old 706 or the 1066, 8 bolts and the whole is on the bench to be worked on

Rumor has it “American Pickers” will be stopping in with “Poconoeagle” on their way out to see “Wood’nCoal”. I can’t wait to see that episode.

What is it about old iron that brings a tear to a guy's eye? It's a good thing I don't have any more than an acre on the edge of town, I'd have too much of it hanging around myself. :lol:

The old cable blade,, i use to run a D-8 cable blade years ago. That was a real challenge when the ground was froze. She would really do a nice job of clearing snow off the haul road when the ground was froze. Those were the good old day's!!

well thats a nice mo sheen there... d-7 is a good work horse.

Im almost finished with the other side brakes that i started on friday. had a bit of mis hap and will post pics soon.
a substantial timber i used to shim up a bottle jack exploded while she was up in the air and was quite exciting as my buddy was laying under it at the time. Boy oh boy... first ya hear a crack and another then BLAM it dropped!! the wheel was still on and there was another big stump under her so she only dropped a few inches but WOW. a real attention getter when 10 ton moves unexpectdly.

we both joked about it but it took a few minutes to realize that it caused the front blade to do a little side shifting and it knocked the "REAL HEAVY"
old mill wood stove off its pearch and broke the flue pipe at the breech! :shock: .. had to go up the the big house and steal a 6" elbow from a back up alaska stove and swap it out with a full fire going! :)

it all worked out.

The big stuff is fun to drive, but oh what a pain to work on. My brother Steven has a pair of Fiat Allis dozers. One is a 21C, the other is a FD30. They each weigh 42-45 tons, and are very tough machines. Just changing the oil is a chore, anything beyond that you might as well use the excavator to move the parts. Here is a picture of the dozers:

The FD30 has a V8 Iveco diesel. Twin turbos, 32 valves...very smooth and powerful.

With that middle machine I wouldn't have had to dig a ditch for my water lines, just run that through once, drop the lines, and backfill. :shock:
