sorry no help on that one. the only data plates i have ever seen on any seat was one from southern parts when it was sold by them. i would think someone from the military had some cute data tag they put on it.

i have finally found a guy that has a book that tells which is which with the MG-1 i wont use his name because i did not ask him if i could but here is what he told me is that the john deere ones have a different serial number which is like 1DA000 and up they were built at a different plant i dont remember which one he told me. ill chat with him again soon and the others that were cletrac  built are like the 1JA000..they were built at the other plant he told me but dont remember which lost the paper. so it looks like i have 3 john deere and 2 cletrac built ones here in my yard. the best 3 i have are john deere. if this is incorrect let me know im sure he knows whats what when the guy has 20 some cletrac not all military. this is what is great about lists like this is the way to spread info to the world ;) thanks for the help guys and thanks blake hope to get you some pictures soon of my cletrac im going to build.i need to pull it out of the line up first. still looking on what kind of pull type road grader they used ?

12  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / Military Cletracs / cletrac made fun of on: November 05, 2003, 10:01:17 AM
a guy at work who builds caterpillar tractors makes fun of my cletrac Mg-1 tractors and sure wish i had some info that would blow some smoke up his rear he is currently restoring a ten and has just got done with a thirty. im hopeing to get one of mine up and in show condition and let the people decide which is better that is when im setting there blowing stuff off with the compressor and working with some nice lighting from the generator. that is if i can get the parts to make them work. if all else fails hope it wins just because its so cool but once again he only thinks the cats are good cletrac sucks and not just the MG-1 he says they all do can you supply enough info that i can get back at him? i hate being made fun of about a hobby and such a cool machine. ow ya there is a little cletrac here in town for sale its pretty darn small it has the same tank as mine does for fuel other than that i dont know the model. ill look if anyone is interested. thanks for your help blake it may be worth it to here him squeel.
