50TD completed at long last

Post by John.Newman » Sat Apr 09, 2016 12:11 pm

After a 10 year wait, the blade has been tidied up and fitted back onto my 50TD and can dig dirt again. This blade was made by Conquip in Sydney who were also DB crawler agents at the time.
I have included a before photo taken 10 years ago.

This looks a great restoration. I'd imagine renovating crawlers to be very time consuming. It looks great.

Can also be very expensive if you have to do work to the undercarriage (tracks, idlers, rollers & sprockets). Luckily, these were in quite good condition so got left alone. Tracks are actually off a Cat D4 track loader fitted with flat plates with grouser bar welded on.
