    Pictures came through great. I am assuming it is working at a power plant because of the blade that it came with. Would love to see pictures of the machine when complete and in action.

    All the pieces except the ripper, came in before the base machine, blade, roller frames, tracks, When they bring it in on the lowbed trailer, it looks top heavy and unstable.

    If you look at the bottom of these silo's you can see the D11 and an 854g, kinda puts the silos into persrective.

    Thanks for sharing.
    I'm assuming that the machine is just for charging the burners and for stockpiling, so why a ripper insted of a counterweight?

    JTL, I was thinking the same thing about a ripper on the D11T. Is this machine used in a operation,where the need to rip occours?

    The rear's a dead giveaway, look at the tanks. On a D10 the tanks have a very narrow tank with a high vertical edge. A D11 has a wide sloping tank.

    The transmission on a D11 protrudes past the case by quite a bit, the D10 is pretty much flush with the case. The engine enclosure doors are a dead giveaway too, different perforation pattern, the D10 has a unique perforation unlike anything else that Cat has.

    You can get a D11 with a large capacity tank that is pretty much square with a very narrow notch cut out for ripper visibility. I think it's ugly but you can run 12+ hours on that tank.

    Multi-shank rippers aren't as common on a D11 as the single shank. They really aren't all that common on a D10 either.

    The three shank we have on are 11 is the biggest 3 shank around, and more then half of are 10's have the 3 shank rippers, the rest have push blocks
