Default Re: TD 15C, IH & Dresser.

The oldest dozer I acquired from J Clubb, a company from Dartford in Kent. The undercarriage is not too good but she runs and drives pretty well.
Clubbs were going to scrap her, i did have to hand over some cash.
The newer Dresser was in good running order having only clocked up 6000 odd hrs. She came to us along with a coal blade which had been constructed on to the original semi U blade. I cut all the extra off and low and behold fresh new paint, well not so new but untouched on two thirds of the mould board was unused.
We had a problem with reverse clutch pack and so took out the transmission.
IH spares availability in this country is pretty bad and so it got left. Now i have the clearing up the yard bug and the dresser engine is running like a new engine, sound new anyway..... i have decided to see if i can get the trans parts.
Bert and JD we also have five Caterpillar dozers and four Komatsus'.
