I liked their discussion of their old D4 cat with the pony motor, since that's about the vintage of mine. All the comments were very much true; too weak to break itself, 900 rpm engine lasts forever, tracks short and blade long so it tends to make "dipity-dive" roads, too weak to even get itself up a steep hill, always starts, no matter how cold and tired it is. I also liked how they used that big military 6x6 (ten-ton tractor?) for hauling the giant dozer. I think that's what they call a "dragon wagon" or tank transporter.
