BRENT's Engineering Ingenuity- The '25M'

Testing out Brent Engineering's custom built 25M for the first time ever in the dirt.

That machine has to be 960000 WoW big but a great tool in the indrusterey. Looks great ...but bigger isn't always better!   There are several huge machines have fallen by the wayside.

Built by the well-known group of American engineers “BRENT’s Engineering Ingenuity”, recognized for building modified and rebuilt equipment with brutal capabilities for earthworks and material handling, the CAT 25M is not an official Caterpillar equipment.  However, it is a machine that is manufactured with components from 5 different equipment of the Caterpillar brand.The CAT 25M has parts of the equipment: CAT 988B, 834B, 836B, 235C, D10N and 657B.  And it is undoubtedly an engineering work that attracts a lot of attention due to the earthmoving capacity it has, having a large curved blade and a height greater than the Official CAT 24M.  I believe there's got to be a limit to these things! Size wise....24M offers last word in large blade grading. O'wise a 140M2 does all the grading any roads engineer needs for sure! This is a lugubrious beast, too big for its own good! 

Just would like to say, my grandfather used a Wabco and would cut the ditches and the roadway for whole subdivisions in a couple days. He would rarely be off on the drainage and the peak of the middle of the road. The grader he used was a Wabco, had I think a 8 cyclinder diesel, blade was around 18 feet and the blade height was like 18 inches. That was his joy to operate. First thing he did back in the 70's when he got it. He took a torch and cut the entire cab off the top so he could see the blade cutting better. He loved nothing better than being on that thing. Watching him do radiuses and cut ditches 4 foot deep with the blade on a steep 45 degree angle in just a few passes and be on grade was like watching a master at work. He did all this after looking at the blueprints, once. Scary how good he was.

The no ripper thing is kinda stumped me,no hydraulics or any indication you could have one.WEIRD! Makes it half a grader in my opinion,so it should be cheaper I guess,bigger is not always better.my old 24h has the snort and less problems by far than my 24m it's just operator friendly with a price.
