    They do exist! I guess number two is in Arizona. Does this mean the Cat secret police are coming to my house now?

    And not taken them to a urban site to test

    Cat probably figured everybody would think its just a 345E, looks like they put some ventilation for the rad and oil coolers on the cab side they were always bad for not having that on they're machines.

    Looking more closely at the first photo, I see that it looks like half the engine hood lifts up on this one. Not a bad idea from a maintanence stand point, but I do like the smaller hatch on the B-D series 345's.

    Lookin forward to seeing more photos (or maybe one in person)... if blow thrower doesn't get abducted first:drinkup
