    Clark 290m photos and information

    I have a bunch of photos and video of 290m's moving some serious material. 4 units pulling 2 bowls each with 600+ hp series 60 Detroits.The rest are pretty much stock and run so smooth. As soon as I can figure out how to post pics and vids I will get them on. These things are amazing, build like a battle ship. The worked 13 days straight across the road from my home and I only seen one down for cutting edges and some other miner stuff. I was a blast watching those double bowls run about 35mph loaded for about a mile and listing to the exhaust brake kick in when they made there turn and slowed down. I will post lots of picks soon.

    Feel free to post pics of 290m's or Cat 830mb's, and any stories about them.

    Can't wait to see the pics. What engine did they come with? I've only seen pictures of them, not in action.

    This is a neat site, seen it some where else on here a while back


    Welcome to Clark290M.com and P.A.S.K., LLC

    Thank you for visiting the P.A.S.K., LLC web site. This site is primarily dedicated to the military Clark-Michigan 290-M, 4-wheel drive, 380-horse power, articulating tractor with tilt dozer blade, in combination with attaching 20-yard scraper bowls.

    This outstanding tractor was developed and over-designed for the United States military to be used in the Vietnam war. The tractors are constructed for extended use in extreme conditions, and were shipped to military bases around the world during this period.

    Although simple in design, it is one heck of a tractor that is massively overbuilt. The Clark-Michigan 290-M was able to function and operate without the aid of a computer. From the construction of remote landing strips, clearing roads of land mines, building jungle bunkers, mountain camps or just in the construction of highways, the Clark-Michigan proved to be the right choice in equipment to get the job done. Safe, simple and efficient with little maintenance that could be performed in the most remote area or in a more urban complex.

    Although the Clark-Michigan 290-M tractor is approximately 40 years old, many of the tractors are being refurbished or modified to be put back into service around the world by construction companies. These tractors are modified for farming, mining, pulling water tankers, sheep foot packers, choppers, plows, dump trailers, scrapers and anything that you could dream of.

    We have one unit that was rebuilt on our yard for the U.S. Army that now is in the Middle East being used to pull the M-1 Abram tanks and other equipment as needed. Watch for photos. And yes, we do have PARTS, both used and new to remanufacture the Clark-Michigan 290-M. Call

    Was going to get some more close ups of these machines, but it is snowing and really muddy back where they are parked. There is a older Terex push cat there with a little extra iron under the hood. Hardly makes it grunt push loading. I try to get some pics of it soon because the are nearly done with this job.
