    Does anyone have pictures of a crawler loader, Cat 977 or Cat 983 with a demolition pole?

    They were mounted on the back of the bucket and used to take down buildings before hydraulic excavators became popular.

    There are pics of a couple somewhere on this forum. I can't find the thread, but i know it exists. I think the thread started out about demo buckets, possibly also peterson building attachments.

    No pictures but at the ending of the movie " Fort Apache , the Bronx " starring Paul Newman will see some track loaders fitted with what looked like an H beam with a paw on the end demolishing buildings .

    Fast forward to 1:59:00

    There is a feller called Edger Browning road building books. He has pictures of just about everything created.
