    Hi all,

    Got an oddball question, so figured this might be the place to ask it.

    Any trackloaders ever leave the factory with a diagonal brace/ equaliser bar arrangement like a dozer has, or are they all fixed U/C ?

    I'm curious is all.

    Thanks
    John

    I can't say for the 955 series , but the 943 , 953 , 963 all have pivot bars and oscillating u/c. Not sure on the older Deere , but the newer ones do as well.

    The old Allis units had a diagonal brace in the rear, with a hard mount to the loader frames off the trucks. My 7G is set up that way as were most of the older machines up to the 7G-B. I am uncertain and cannot remember of the larger HD12G or larger tractors including the FL series FA.
