    Cat Grader

    I spotted this old Cat on a recent trip and took a few shots. It has a 3 cylinder diesel with a pony motor to start. The ID plate had too much paint on it to be legible, can anyone identify this machine?

    It's a list pretty far down on the screen. Just to let you know Northart has one of these in his yard. The pictures I took came from the Alaska transportation museum.

    Well shut my mouth! Back in the days when carpenters helped build heavy equipment. Now that's old!
