News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link: http://cletrac.org/photos/

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

I would like to start a new section of the photo album section of pictures of Cletrac and Oliver dealerships. If you have any pictures of dealerships - either old pictures and/or how they look now - please send them to me and I will put them up on the site. Please give as much information as you can about the dealership and the pictures.

Thanks,

Blake

Hi Blake I have been very lucky and found a Herc motor for my AD. But when we where there, the old guy produced a book from Britstand dated 1954, they were the main manufractures of machinary and importers here in Aussie. It listed a number of dealers thoughout Australia, the book had a photo of there factory in Mascot Sydney. They boasted they were the largest manufacture in the Southern hemispere. Also photos of Cletracs and other machines. I am going back soon to see him again and will try to get a photocopy of it for you if you are interested.
Cheers Willo

Thanks Willo, that would be great. See if you can borrow the original and scan them as photocopies seldom come out good enough. But get what you can.

I just found a set of drawing for the ware loader.  They were with the OC-3 I got from my father-in-law.  The drawing plates are dated 1952 & 1953.  Are these someting that are common or worth posting to the list?  These appear to be the machine drawings for manufacturing assembly, not sure.
