I built this in 1991. Made from maple, cherry, walnut. Got the plans from a magazine ad. Don’t remember which magazine. From the tip of the bucket to the folded arm is 45”. From the tip of front bucket to extended rear bucket is 57”. Front bucket is 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” x 11” . Rear bucket is 3” x 3” x 5”. The track is 19” center, 2” wide. The track moves. From table top to top of the hood is 8 1/2”.
If I was to build this again, would defiantly add roll cage.
While this is a old build. I hope you enjoy seeing it.

Looking good.
I have never seen a dozer with a back hoe before.

Like you, I haven’t either. But I was told that it is real. Think I’ll check the net.

Great project b’317, like majuvla said,why has it taken you so long to tell us about it?

Are the photos circa 1991 or has the model survived to modern times?

The photos were taken yesterday. It’s been untouched since built.
Thank you all for kind words, about model.

Very fine job on building the dozer, backhoe units on dozer have been used for along time, to work in difficult areas, 45 years ago when we where putting our well in we used one, it was over a steep hill were a spring was. A wheel machine would never have done it. Not as common today as now the excavator is the most common earth moving machine, used for most everything. All the backhoes are now tractors for mobility.

Just one piece at a time. Sure you could do it.
Brian, Thanks for information. I didn’t know. So was glad to learn.
Dust, a lot of it over the years. LOL.
I THANK all of you, for the Daily Three.
