1929 Caterpillar SIXTY starting and pushing dirt

Cat 60 hand starting, pushing a little dirt, and loading on a trailer. 2017 K&O show

 Incredible old machine, and what a clever starting process.  Great to see the old machine being used and still doing useful work.  When I was a kid/teen in the 80's, we lived on the foothills and my neighbor had one of these tractors. My dad hired him several times in the spring to take down the tall weeds in our orchard. It was a beast.  Very slow crwaler but very powerful because they're full of torque power.  I love those old machines. Great memories, too.  It's incredible how 30 years later bulldozers were already very similar to what we see today, yet very little has changed in the last 30 years. Progress was so much faster back then.  It is very awesome to me that a machine rapidly approaching 100 years old still works, and well enough to do real work if it was needed for it. To those who are saying otherwise, this engine sounds very healthy, with the exception of the fact that the operator was suffocating it to death.The trailer loading was PAINFUL. Why was he so dedicated to keeping it so suffocated Open it up a little and it'll climb that trailer like it's not even there. She's clearly still sound; she can definitely take it!  Love these old machines. Still work and start up after years of standing. New stuff has made us dependent on expensive workshops.  It's a beautiful piece of art and it takes an artist to get it moving. Super cool, fabulously well done.
