Hi, Bostonpowercat.
I have been led to understand that the DD9s were built up from pairs of tractors with consecutive serial #s - i.e. 66A3611 and 66A3512. I would imagine that any of the DD9 coupling and control paraphernalia that you managed to salvage from Agristruction's yard would have been original, either from Buster's original builds or from later Cat builds.

Original or not, congratulations to both you and Tony for your magnificent efforts on both the 666 and the DD9G - and for having the first of each of them in Britain. Great stuff.

To add to my earlier comment, there was a working set in South Carolina up until a couple of years ago with several videos posted on Youtube. How-wevver, I (vaguely) remember hearing something about one of the tractors in that set-up having 'a major' and I don't know if they are keeping the outfit together or splitting it.

Just my 0.02.

Thanks for the information, lets hope they manage to keep it together, it would be a real shame to lose it.
Cheers

Hi, Bostonpowercat.
                             Great stuff. Another set, even if not an original, that makes 3 sets I know of in existence today. Thanks for sharing.

Just my 0.02.

Buster Peterson sold some diy kits before Cat bought the Patent and he made 10 sets with the 66A D9G serial numbers, the major parts for this setup coming from the legendary ColinCo/Agristruction I wonder what is original and what is not!

Thanks for the reply! Dewind is actually about 20 minutes from the job, they are one of the 2 that bid it. We have a handful of different views on what would and would not work.

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar D8T WH [Custom 1:50]


During the Modelshow Europe 2016 I received this latest custom built addition in my collection and directly took it to the photo set:

   Caterpillar D8T WH (Waste Handler) “Caron” Tractor-Type Tractor

Ad Gevers showed during the Modelshow Europe 2016 his version of the Caterpillar D8T WDA Track-Type Tractor with WDA CARON DSU dozer blade & CARON SWS Tracks in 1:50 on the basis of the Norscot D8T and three exclusive kits: The resin CARON DSU Trash Blade comes from a very exclusive kit which is based on the metal Trash Blade made by Ray Roltgen and the CARON SWS metal Tracks and the Back box where both exclusive cADSttachments kits. (Sorry for those who are interested but I have to disappoint you that all three of these kits where and are not available for sale).

Enjoy the first photo! I will add more pictures from the Caterpillar D8T WH (Waste Handler) “Caron” Tractor-Type Tractor scale model, machine in 1:1 and background information in the category Tractor-Type Tractors So stay tuned for more!

Hello everyone,
We have a project we are going to be starting here soon, hoping the DEQ gets there stuff together. The project is a decent size subdivision nothing to crazy. The area of concern for us is the sewer line we have to install. It's a 1500 foot stretch from and existing subdivision through the woods and partial swamp to the new subdivision. We have had multiple dewatering contractors bid or and look at it and multiple that felt it was not worth there time to try and tackle. Our conditions are a fine brown silty sand with a water table from anywhere from 2'-4' in depth. Our sewer runs from 16' deep to 13' deep. One company wants to trench a tile in while another wants to use all well points. We met with a geologist that is familiar with the area and his concern was that a tile would end up plugged and that well points would keep up once hit the swamp area which is roughly a 500' run. He thinks we will have to have a second set of dewatering going on as we dig to keep it semi dry. Our easement is only 30' wide to help out as well. Any insight or experience of this kind that could help us with some thoughts and ideas would be great. I appreciate the help guys!
