Re: CAT
This is not a Caterpillar grader. This is the one of a kind grader built by Umberto Acco in the early 80's. It was build for a large project in Libia. It has 2 engines. The rear engine is a Caterpillar with 1000 hp, and the front engine is also a Caterpillar with 700 hp.
It is the biggest grader ever in the whole world.
Umberto Acco als holds the world record for the biggest bulldozer ever build.

Yes it was due to a trading embargo. That's why both, grader and dozer are still standing in a museum in Italy somewhere.
The dozer is accompanied there by a first series CAT D10 and a Fiat-Allis 41B to compare it to some of the biggest dozer from it's era. I even dwarfs the Komatsu D575 Super Dozer.
The grader dwarfs the CAT 24H and M graders with it's 33 foot mouldboard and 1.700 HP.
