    By all accounts it's going to be bigger and better next time.
    I worked on a job where that 660 was working and was push loaded with a Champion grader. The young bloke operating it wouldn't listen when he was told to slow down and keep the bowl lower, then he rolled it. I had to dig the dirt out of it so it could be stood up.:D

    I thought a TD25 but possibly a TD30 or TD40? It looks pretty big.

    Only ever saw One TD 30 and no TD 40s, was MONSTROUSLY Huge, this one does not impress to that level. Was on a Spoil Pile at a mine where I believe most ended up much as the HD41s of Allis fame.

    I am getting to that stage Tones where I wish to slow down some, tour a lot, visit with old friends and put the wrenches away. The scent of warm moist YOUNG female bodies tanning on sunny beaches comes to mind and stirs heart strings!!
