Yeah TG have ground for it....
Put me on the spot dave,havent been out much but that ones sat in cupboard,only 6 hrs with it but will give it a few days soon when i have more time if it can handle the ground...
Yeah wombat only bit heavier then the 19" Very Happy
 Should do davesgold,be a few months away yet Cool
 Hugh yeah its a td6,got it off a 78 yr old thats rebuilt the truck and the little dozer,old school tinkerer that can rebuild or fix anything id say,he has heavily modified the td6,rams up the front so the original maze of arms and rams on side are gone,as you can prob see,pins idlers sprockets etc all done,heres the kicker,instead of rebuilding the orig motor (head had cracks everywhere and he was struggling to find one) he fitted a mazda t3500 donk and box coupled to the td6 box,what ive researched the td6 had about 35-40hp,think this motors up around 80-90,prob the worlds most powerfull td6 Shocked  the little thing runs like a champ....
Few small bit and pieces to tidy up on the dozer but not alot,some fresh lines here and there and tidy up some wiring,steer clutches are good and he did the brake bands.....
ps hugh: serial tag still on it,infos online and it was no 28,000 odd which puts it 1951-52....

Great buy Goldchaser. That will be fun for sure.

The only little obstacle is tiny metal chards coming off the tracks, but no big deal. cheers Pete.

Im not gonna worry about tiny steel or tiny gold signals pete we'll be to busy picking up 1-2kg nuggets....wont we Rolling Eyes
Seriously though the pair were a bargain for the work thats been done to them so nothing to lose really,about 11ozs and its payed for,theres gold deeper where its going so hopefully we can cover it,roll the dice anyway and see what happens,might do some cheap scraping later for any locals also while its parked......

Yeah sat about 70c the whole way back,runs quite well,had alot of work done to it but he didnt touch the motor,blows a little blue smoke until it warms up,steerings a bit vague in the old girl,78 -D series,pulled up past sth cross for a much needed snooze early morn on the way back....

Ah, I see, your going out there to have fun aren't you. It reminded me of my little red Massey Ferguson 35. Gee, I miss her. Sad

Have you got a ripper blade on the back goldchaser? Would it help?

I was going to mention I bought a new pick Rolling Eyes but seeing your new digger in action it seems so insignificant  pale  makes one feel slightly inadequate actually  lol!  and definitely makes you this weeks winner of the Big Boys Big Toys category,  V05  Congrats!!!!.... V01  does the wife know or are you going to sneak this one in silent, having been born and raised a farm boy in the South West, I often dream of playing with a bit of old machinery so its always good to see a bit of older gear resurrected back to a new life, good luck with it, love the video, it speaks a million words, please keep us informed.
