    I thought this was kinda interesting. I was wondering if Scrubpuller is one of the operators !

    Fair go mate, I'm not that bloody old! (grins)
    Interesting photo, unusual to see a scraper of that vintage with such a stout looking sunshade . . . almost looks like a ROPS.
    Cheers.

    Pretty sure that's post-1945, so it could be you, Scrub:)

    There were a few cut-down Sherman's in the UK, one or two in agriculture, some muck shifting. Wouldn't want to foot the fuel bill or keep 'em in shoes.

    Based on the frontal bolting that was probably a M-3 Grant not a Sherman.
