Re: cat D4
These tractors were common in the pacific northwest Palouse
USA in the 1950's to farm the hills. A pony engine was
required to start the diesel engine. Not as simple as IH
which started on gas and swithched over to diesel with a
valve lever flip and throttle engagement. You sat really
flat with legs almost straigth out in front of you. Usually
no cab and alot of noise and rough ride at times. Usually
pulled 5 bottom 16" plow. Had to be moved from farm to farm
by truck. Every farm had a loading dock by the field for
this purpose. Would have been nice to have rubber tracks way
back then already. I drove one as a kid pulling a hay wagon.
How things have changed from then to challengers and
articulatd tractors of later times. Seems like tractor size
multiplied about 4X in a decade and a half due to smaller
farms not being able to survive financially.
